Vapors - Various Artists

Radio TV and even the press know the meaning of vapors

 

The meanin' of this word without no doubt

Means nobody wants to be there when you're down and out

Once you're established and got a lot of money

Everybody wanna be your buddy and honey

Like tall buildings they call skyscrapers

 

Can you feel it

 

Nothin' can save ya

For this is the season of catchin' the vapors

 

And since I got time what I'm gonna do

 

Is tell ya how to spread it throughout my crew

 

Wel you all know TJ Swan who sang on my records

Made the music nobody beats the biz

Well check it

Back in the days before this began

 

He usually tried to talk to this girl name Fran

The type of female with fly Gucci wear

With big trunk jewelry and extensions in her hair

When swan tried to kick it she always fessed

Talkin' about baby 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 wears fly valley boots

 

Rough leather fashions and tough silk suits

 

Now she stop frontin' an' wants to speak

 

And be comin' to all the shows

Every single weekend

To get his beeper number she'd be beggin' please

 

Dyin' for the day to get skeezed

 

She caught the vapors

 

She caught the vapors

 

She caught the vapors

 

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 nothin' 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 hangin' down and his sneakers untied

And a rasta type Kango tilted to the side

 

Around his neighborhood people treated him bad

And said he was the worst thing his mom's ever had

They said that he will grow up to be nothin' 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 sellin' worldwide

Now the same people that didn't like him as a child be sayin'

Can I borrow a dollar ooh you're a star now

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

Now I got a cousin by the name of Von Lee

Better known to y'all as cut master cool V

He cuts scratch transform with finesse

 

And all that mess

 

Well I remember when he first started to rock

And tried to get his 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 cousin Von still tried on and on and on

 

'Til the like break of dawn

 

To put this job in effect

 

But they'd look right past him and be like next

 

Now for the year of 88

 

Cool V is makin' dollars so my cousin's like straight

He walks into the same record shop as before

And the boss'll be like Von welcome to my store

Offerin' him a job but now he don't want it

Damn it feels goo 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

 

They caught 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 M.C. deejayin' 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 gettin' 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'd have to beg to get on the mike 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 tryin' to use it

But now things switched without belief

 

Yo biz do you remember me from Nober Street chief

We used to be down back in the days

It happens all the time and never ceases to amaze

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

They caught the vapors

 

The vapors

 

The vapors
