What does "얌마" means?

I heard from song lyrics: "얌마 니 꿈을 뭐니?"
I know the rest of the lyrics mean "What's your dream?" But I don't get what "얌마"means...

    I think it's short for 야 이놈아 or 야 임마. 놈 means something like "guy, dude, jerk, bloke". Guys use it to address their guy friends. In this case it could be translated as "hey you!".
