It's all fun and games listening to Missy Elliot's 2000s 'Work It' banger... until you have no idea wtf she's saying (ie. "iyerpripenipetzwahhhhhnnyeeeehhh").
Fear no more.
15 years later, the Internet is figuring out what Missy ACTUALLY says - and everyone's losing their damn mind over it.
Did you know the real Missy lyrics before now? Turns out she wasn't just saying gibberish (or she was, but at least there was intention behind it). Missy schooled us all.
When you realize she REALLY FLIPS IT AND REVERSE IT!!! pic.twitter.com/8NMozRsYmU— AAMIA (@Mia143__) March 22, 2017
