WTF (Where They From)

Missy Elliott

WTF (Where They From) Lyrics

[Produced by Pharrell]

[Intro]

[Hook: Missy Elliott]
Shorty what?
The dance that you doing is dumb
How they do it where you from?
Stickin' out your tongue
Girl, but you know you're too young
A bunch of girls do it and the shit look fun
That's how they do it where we from
You know it don't start till one
That's how they do it where they from


[Verse 1: Missy Elliott]
I'm so faded, no exaggeration
Backs breakin' like a percolation
Boys to the yard for some hip spankin'

Where you make it drop down like you in the matrix
Can't take it, them chicks been fakin'
Y'all still sleep, better stay awakened
Hot new dance for the hood to make it

Make the donk move fast, make them think you drinkin'
Head to the floor don't collect that though
You better huddle up cause the beat's so cold

Pop that, pop that, cock and reload
This another hit, I got an ace in the hole

Boys on my back, playa did you peep that?
You got a small stack, playa, you can keep that

I'm a Big Mac make you wanna eat that
Like m-m-m-m-m, yak it to the yak
Junk in the trunk make you pumps in the bump
Girls wanna have fun make you stickin' out your tongue


[Hook: Missy Elliott]
Shorty what?
The dance that you doing is dumb
How they do it where you from?
Stickin' out your tongue girl
But you know you're too young
A bunch of girls do it and the shit look fun
That's how they do it where we from
You know it don't start till one
That's how they do it where they from


[Verse 2: Pharrell]
I come into this bitch like liquid
Drip, drip, then the business
Click, click, get your picture

Hermés Trismegistus
Witness and get lifted
Basic, nigga I was born in the basement
Shape shift, nigga I think like a spaceship

False, oh-nah-nah-nah
I am so different than y'all, so far apart
The way that I balance the bars

I never fall, and if I do I just call
The almighty yellow star, God

Lyrically I'm Optimus Prime
The car I drive, look far I ride

When I go by, smoke in your eyes
So open your eyes, the joke's on you guys
And you ain't gotta be a mason to see through
Some of this shit on occasion


[Hook: Missy Elliott]
Shorty what?
The dance that you doing is dumb
How they do it where you from?
Stickin' out your tongue girl
But you know you're too young
A bunch of girls do it and the shit look fun
That's how they do it where we from
You know it don't start till one
That's how they do it where they from


[Verse 3: Missy Elliott]
I'm like kak-a-rak-a-rak-rak-a-rak-a-rak
Make a new track, make 'em fall on they crack

Give 'em a slap, appetizer and smack
I'm so fat in the back, make the boys all collapse

Yeah when I rap they be all on my jack
Boys wanna jump on this pussy cat

Got a new idea, let me switch it
Man, I'm so futuristic

Big lips and big, big, big hips
Body be thick like a biscuit

Different, rippin' shit, microphone grippin' it
Gettin' these Benjamins, new car, whippin' it

Uh, I'm so far ahead of ya'll, man I'm on top of the stars
I don't care none of you are, blah-blah-blah-blah
You best to go rewrite your bars


[Outro Missy Elliott & (Pharrell)]
Shawty what?
How they do it where you from? (Triflin'!)
How they do it where you from?
That's how they do it where we from
That's how they do it where they from
Shawty what?
How they do it where you from? (Hey!)
How they do it where you from?
That's how they do it where we from
That's how they do it where they from
