Siye bek ate? (Mwen siye bek ate mwen pa janm rele w anko).

Siye bèk atè or siye bouch atè (lit. wipe your mouth on the floor)  is like swearing off of something, swearing not to do something wrong again.
After a child has been punished, the person who punished the child might tell the child, "Siye bouch ou atè pou w pa janm fè sa ankòSwear that you'll never do that again."
