    work out

    Hi, I don't understand part of the Lyric by Janet Jackson (Feedback)
    .....
    Light Skin, Dark Skin, My Asian Persuasion,
    I Got them all that's why these girls out here hatin
    Cause I'm sexy
    Do you like my style
    Yeah that sexy sexy sexy
    Like I rock it down
    Yeah that sexy sexy sexy
    You can work me out ..


    I got THEM all: Does "them" refer to the characteristcs she is talking about(dark skin, light skin and asian persuasion) ?

    I rock it down: does the verb mean the same as "shake"?
    does "it" refer to her bottom?

    You can work me out: What does it mean? You can train me?
    Thanks Rip

    does "it" refer to her bottom? So many possibilities! It could mean that, it could also mean that she is doing things her way.

    You can work me out: What does it mean? You can train me? "work me out" - like working out a problem.
    Thanks Rip

    Like Sinatra in the song, she does things the way she wants to do them, not the way other people want her to do them.
