So, That’s What Missy Elliot Said In ‘Work It’!

Subscribe to Hot 107.9 on

You know that part in “Work It” when Missy Elliott raps complete gibberish? Yeah, the part when she says “It’s yur flip-a-nipa flan ya” or, at least, that’s what I heard. She’s actually saying, “Ti esrever dna ti pilf nwod gniht ym tup I”.

If you listen to the lyrics :30 seconds in you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

Okay, now that we are all on the same page and we all heard Missy rap about putting her thing down, flipping it and reversing it, this next thing I’m about to tell you will make your brain feel like that little girl in the music video was breakdancing in your head…

Missy Elliott wasn’t playing when she said “I put my my thing down, flip it and reverse it”. She really does put her thing down, flip it and reverse it!

Here, take a peek at the lyrics and it will all make sense.

Is it worth it, let me work it
I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it
Ti esrever dna ti pilf nwod gniht ym tup I
Ti esrever dna ti pilf nwod gniht ym tup I

Yes,”Ti esrever dna ti pilf nwod gniht ym tup I” is literally “I put my my thing down, flip it and reverse it” flipped and reversed. Mind. Blown.

I’m not gonna lie though, why has it taken 15 years to figure this out? And don’t just shake your head at me, because I am not the only one that was stumped by Missy’s outrageous wit. According to Uproxx, a bunch of Missy Elliott fans are just now flipping it and reversing it and finally figuring out what Missy has been saying this whole time.

Enod llew. Yssim, enod llew. — Ha, Let’s see if you can flip and reverse that!
