Work It

Lyricist:     Composer:



[-scratching-] DJ please, pick up your phone

I'm on the request line [-scratching-]

This is a Missy Elliott one time exclusive

(C'mon, c'mon)



Is it worth it, let me work it

I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it

It's (I put thing down, flip and reverse it)*Backwards 2x*

If you got a big [elephant], let me search ya

To find out how hard I gotta work ya

It's (I put thing down, flip and reverse it)*Backwards 2x*



I'd like to get to know ya so I could show-yah

Put the pussy on ya like I told-yah

Gimme all your numbers so I could phone-yah

Your girl actin' stank then call me ov-ah

Not on the bed, lay me on your so-fah

Phone before you come, I need to shave my chocha



You do or you don't or you will or won't yah

Go downtown and eat it like a vul-tcha

See my hips and my tips, don't yah

See my ass and my lips, don't yah

Lost a few pounds in my whiffs for yah

This tha kinda beat that goes raa ta ta

ra ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ta

Sex me so good I say blah-blah-blah

Work it, I need a glass of wat-ah

Boy, oh, boy, it's good to know yah


Is it worth it, let me work it

I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it

It's (I put thing down, flip and reverse it)*Backwards 2x*

If you got a big [elephant], let me search ya

To find out how hard I gotta work ya

It's (I put thing down, flip and reverse it)*Backwards 2x*
{*"I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it" - backwards 2X*}





















If you a fly gal get your nails done

Get a pedicure, get your hair did

Boy, lift it up, let's make a toast-ah

Let's get drunk, that's gon' bring us clos-ah

Don't I look like a Halle Berry post-ah?

See the Belvedere playin' tricks on yah

Girlfriend wanna be like me, nev-ah

You won't find a bitch that's even bettah

I make you hot as Las Vegas weath-a

Listen up close while I take it backwards

(Watch the way Missy like to take it backwards) [backwards]

I'm not a prostitute, but I could give you what you want

I love your braids and your mouth full of fronts

Love the way my ass go bbompa-bompa-bomp-bomp

Keep your eyes on my bompa-bompa-bomp-bomp

And think you can handle this gadong-a-dong-dong

Take my thong off and my ass go boom

Cut the lights off so you see what I could do



Is it worth it, let me work it

I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it

It's (I put thing down, flip and reverse it)*Backwards 2x*

If you got a big [elephant], let me search ya

To find out how hard I gotta work ya

It's (I put thing down, flip and reverse it)*Backwards 2x*





Boys, boys, all type of boys

Black, white, Puerto Rican, Chinese boys

Why-thai,-thai-o-toy-o-thai-thai

Rock-thai,-thai-o-toy-o-thai-thai

Girls, girls, get that cash

If it's 9 to 5 or shakin' your ass

Ain't no shame, ladies do your thang

Just make sure you ahead of the game

Just cause I got a lotta fame supa

Prince couldn't get me to change my name papa

Kunta Kinte a slave again, no sir

Picture black sayin', "Oh, yes a mastah"

Picture Lil' Kim dating a pastor

Minnie Me and Big Ren can out last ya

Who is the best, I don't have to ask ya

When I come out you won't even matt-ah

Why you act dumb like "Uh, duh"

So you act dumb like "Uh, duh"

As the drummer boy go ba-rom-pop-pom-pom

Give me some-some-some of this in a cinnabun



Is it worth it, let me work it

I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it

{*"I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it" - backwards 2X*}

If you got a big [elephant], let me search ya

To find out how hard I gotta work ya

{*"I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it" - backwards 2X*}



To my fellas, ooooh

Good God, I like the way you work that


To my ladies, woo

You sure know how to work that, good God
