    Can you feel it, nothing can save ya
    For this is the season of catching the vapors
    And since I got time, what I'm gonna do
    Is tell you how this spreaded throughout my crew
    Well you all know TJ Swan who sang on my records
    "Make the Music", "Nobody Beats the Biz", well, check it
    Back in the days before this began
    He used to try to talk to this girl name Fran
    The type of female with fly Gucci wear
    With big truck jewelry and extensions in her hair
    When Swan tried to kick it, she always fessed
    Talking about "Nigga please, you work for UPS"
    Since he wasn't no type of big drug dealer
    My man TJ Swan didn't appeal to her
    But now he trucks gold and wear fly Bally boots
    Rough leather fashion and tough silk suits
    Now she stop fronting and wants to speak and
    Be coming to all the shows every single weekend
    To get his beeper number, she'd be begging please
    Dying for the day to get skeezed

    She caught the vapors

    I got another partner that's calm and plain
    He goes by the name of the Big Daddy Kane
    A mellow type of fellow that's laid back
    Back in the days he was nothing like that
    I remember when he used to fight every day
    What grown-ups would tell him he would never obey
    He wore his pants hanging down and his sneakers untied
    And a rasta-type Kangol tilted to the side
    Around his neighborhood people treated him bad
    And said he was the worst thing his moms ever had
    They said that he will grow up to be nothing but a hoodlum
    Or either in jail, or someone would shoot him
    But now he's grown up, to their surprise
    Big Daddy got a hit record selling worldwide
    Now the same people that didn't like him as a child
    Be saying can I borrow a dollar, ooh, you're a star now

    They caught the vapors

    Now I got a cousin by the name of Vaughan Lee
    Better known to y'all as Cutmaster Cool V
    He cuts, scratch, transform with finesse
    {imitates cuts and scratches} and all that mess
    Well I remember when he first started to rock
    And tried to get this job in a record shop
    He was in it to win it but the boss fronted
    Said, "Sorry Mr. Lee, but there's no help wanted"
    Now my cuz Vaughan still tried on and on and on
    'Til the like break of dawn
    To put this j-o-b in effect
    But they'd look right past him and be like, "Next"
    Now for the year of '88
    Cool V is making dollars so my cousin's like straight
    He walks into the same record shop as before
    And the boss be like, "Vaughan, welcome to my store"
    Offering him a job but naw, he don't want it
    Damn it feels good to see people up on it
    Cause I remember when at first they wasn't
    Now guess what they caught from my cousin
    The vapors

    They caught the vapors

    Last subject of the story is about Biz Mark
    I had to work for mine to put your body in park
    When I was a teenager, I wanted to be down
    With a lot of MC-DJ'ing crews in town
    So in school on Nobel Street, I say "Can I be down, champ"
    They said no and treated me like a wet food stamp
    After getting rejected I was very depressed
    Sat and wrote some def doo-doo rhymes at my rest
    When I used to come to parties they'd make me pay
    I would have to beg to get on the mic and rap that day
    I was never into girls, I was just into my music
    They acted like I wanted to keep it instead of trying to use it
    But now things switched, without belief
    "Yo, Biz, do you remember me from Noble Street, chief?
    We used to be down back in the days"
    It happens all the time and never cease to amaze

    They caught the vapors
