It’s none of your business!

its-none-of-your-business

Notice that because “of” is unstressed, it’s pronounced with the weak vowel /ə/. Notice also that, despite the spelling, “business” only has two syllables. The i is silent.

The phrase means “I’m not going to tell you”. We also say “Mind your own business.” Be careful, it’s quite strong. Use it as a joke with good friends only.
