If you want to say “before you know it” or something that was done in a hurry, you would say

כשאחד רוצה לומר שמשהו קרה בן רגע או ''לפני שהיה לי זמן לחשוב על זה'', הוא אומר

צווישן אַ יאָ און אַ ניין

tsvishn a yo un a neyn

between a yes and a no

בין כן ולא

Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
