Missy Elliot's "Work It" is a straight BANGER. 

But we've now discovered that Missy's song wasn't just a straight jam, it was also secretly GENIUS. 

In the video below, skip to 0:35.

What do you hear? That line that sounds like "ityerpripenipetzwaaahhnyeeeeehhh".

But, if like us you've spent all these years thinking that it was a made-up string of noises that had no meaning whatsoever, then you are wrong.

Missy ya clever thing you!

Following this discovery, the internet is understandably freaking the f out:

 

 Missy, we bow down to you.
