No, it doesn't mean hello, or hi, it's just a way so that people pay attention to you. Comment by: Trusx   
Isn't it just "oye" Por ejemplo, if you say "Oye guey" it just means hey man...in order to get someone's attention? Or do Spanish speakers actually say hey? Comment by: kc   
its not hey its ey to get someones attention and technically oye guey is for mexicans Comment by: kiana   
'Hey' - is what is shouted to gain someone's attention, instead of shouting their name. As posted by kc above. It does not mean 'hello' or 'hi'. It is not a 'greeting'. Comment by: Jemmy Hanson   
so 'hey' would be like english equivilent of 'yo' right? Comment by: katy   
Actually, no. "oye" is the present tú form of the infinitive oír, which means "to listen." so this phrase literally means listen guy. Comment by: Kamari
