'boss' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both people as well as being singular nouns.

'yes right you're' is the wordplay.
'right' says to take the final letters (the letter on the right of the word).

'the' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for sir that I've seen before include "Title of 1 across" , "Title of knight or baronet" , "Honourable title" , "Male form of address" , "Polite form of address to a man" .)
