Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"You Don't Know"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Blow out you like I'm an air vent
Why They're Nonsensical:
Unless Missy's in the process of learning English for the first time in her life, I see no reason for such a ridiculous expression as 'blow out you' to occur in this song. It's not as if 'blow you out' would've made any difference rhythmically anyway.

"Hot Boyz"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Hot boyz Baby you got what I want
See cuz y'all be driving Lexus jeeps
And the Benz jeeps, and the Lincoln jeeps
Nothing cheaper, got them Platinum Visa's
Why They're Nonsensical:
What if these so called 'Hot Boyz' looked very unattractive, would they still be hot? I think the song should be re-titled as 'Hot Toyz.'

Insincere Song Lyrics:

"The Rain (Supa Dup Fly)"
The Insincere Lyrics:
I break up with him before he dumps me
To have me, yes, you lucky
Why They're Insincere:
That's so childish to break up with someone before they dump you! What if he wasnt gonna break up with you - that means that a good relationship went to waste due to your paranoia and childishness. Grow up Missy!

Misrhymed Song Lyrics:

"Can't Stop"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
You used to talk that kinky sh*t up in my ears
And you would buy me pink pretty underwears
Why They're Misrhymed:
Say the words 'ears' and 'wears' out loud. Now imagine Missy Elliott trying to rhyme the two together, dragging the intonations out so that wears sounds like 'weers'. Then consider the fact she suddenly pluralises a word that's singular in normal English to desperately forge that rhyme. Truly, laughably and unbelievably sloppy.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Get Ur Freak On"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
Holla! Ain't no stoppin' me
Copywritten so don't copy me
Why They're Inappropriate:
This would be a cool and clever line... if only the word was 'copyrighted' instead of 'copywritten' (as the root word is not "copywrite"; she obviously had her homonyms "right" and "write" mixed up).

Backwards Messages:

"Work It"
In the chorus, after the line"put my thing down, zip it and reverse it" you hear the same line backwards. Also, during the middle of the song, after "Listen up close while I take you backwards", you hear "Watch the way Missy like to take it backwards" in reverse. Cryptic!
