Back in this bitch, Missy hoppin' out the sunroof
I got 'bout hundred coupes, shooters with me, hundred troops
Got a hundred bands, goin' H.A.M., we don't give a damn

'Round like a ceiling fan

Overall Meaning

In Missy Elliott's "Cool Off," the artist is boldly asserting her place in the rap game as she steps back onto the scene. With the repeated lines of "Do it" and "Get it," Elliott channels her confidence and energy through the lyrics, urging her listeners to do the same. Throughout the song, she makes clear that she is in charge, both of the beat and of herself, as demonstrated through the lyrics "Me and my friends, yeah, we on ten / And the song never ends, no, the song never ends." She is also unafraid to compete with other rappers, mentioning Jay-Z in the lines "Break a sweat, make 'em lose control, ain't no AC / Goin' hard, tempo forty-four, feel like Jay-Z."


Elliott's lyrics are filled with references to physical movement and action, such as the lines "Back in this bitch, Missy hoppin' out the sunroof" and "Body shaped like a fisheye lens / I'll make it drop, yeah, I'll make it bend." These lines are further emphasized by the pulsing beat and bass of the music, which encourages movement and dancing. The repeated refrain of "Cool off" provides an ironic counterpoint to the energy of the song, reminding listeners to take a moment to catch their breath and regroup before diving into the next round of action.
