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 you how it's spreaded throughout my crew
Well you all know Nate Dogg who sings on my records
"Never Leave Me Alone", "Ain't No Fun", now check it
Back in the days before Nate Dogg began
He used to try to holla at this girl named Pam
The type of female with fly Gucci wear
She wore a big Turkish wool with a weave in her hair
When they tried to kick it, she'd always fess
Talkin' about, "Baby, please, you out here servin' stress"
Since he wasn't no type of big chronic dealer
The homie Nate Dogg didn't appeal to her
But now he rock boots that match with his suits
And push a Lexus coupe that's extra G
And now she stop frontin' and wants to speak and
Be comin' around The Pound every single weekend
To get his beeper number, she be beggin' please (please)
Dyin' for the day to eat these

She caught the vapors (the vapors)
(Now-now-now guess what they caught?)
She caught the vapors (vapors)
(Now guess what they caught?) The vapors

I got a little cousin that's come to play
He bring the heat with the beat for the Dogg Pound gang
A mellow type of fellow, that's laid back
But back in the days he wasn't nothin' like that
I remember when he used to scrap every day
When my auntie would tell him he would never obey
He wore his khakis hangin' down with his Starks untied
And a blue and gray cap that said "The Eastside"
Around my neighborhood the people treated him bad
They said," Daz was the worst thing his moms ever had"
They said, "He he would grow up to be nothin' but a gangsta"
Or either in jail or someone will shank him
But now he's grown up to they're surprise
D-a-z, he got a hit record slangin' world wide
Now the same people that didn't like him as a child
Bumpin' Dogg Food, Doggfather, and Doggystyle

They caught the vapors (vapors, vapors)
(Now guess what they caught?)
They caught the vapors (the vapors, vapors)

I got another homie from the LBC
Known to y'all as DJ Warren G
He cut, scratched, transformed with finesse
And all that mess
I remember when we first started to rap
He tried to get this job at Calvin's Record Shop
He was in it to win it, but the boss fronted
Said, "Sorry Warren G, but there's no help wanted"
Now my homie Warren still tried
On and on and on 'til the light break of dawn
To work at the V.I.P. Would be the link
But they looked right past him so my homie straight dipped
Now for the year after Regulate
Warren G is havin' papers so my homie's life straight
He walked into the same record shop as before
And the boss be like, "Warren, welcome to my store"
Offerin' him a job, but nah, he don't want it (man)
Damn, it feels good to see people up on it
'Cause I remember when at first they wasn't
Now guess what they caught since he bustin'?

The vapors (the vapors)
(Now guess what they caught?)
They caught the vapors (the vapors)
(Now-now guess what they caught?)
Guess I gotta talk about me, now (the vapors)

Last subject of the story is about Snoop Dogg
I had to work for mine to show I was a true hog
When I was a teenager, I tried to be down
But since they wasn't tryna hear me, I made the Dogg Pound
I saw a crew on 2-1 street
And said, "Can I be down, champ?"
They said, "No", they treated me like a wet food stamp
After gettin' rejected, I ain't run off the set
I sat and wrote some Dogg doodle rhymes at my rest
When I used to go to parties, they'd make me wait
Would have to beg to get on the mic to set MCs straight
I ain't never love no hoes, I was just into my music
They acted like I wanted to keep on hangin' with the Deuces
But now things switched from West to East
"Yo Dogg, do you remember me from 21st street, G?" (Sorry, I don't)
"We used to see Daz back in the day"
It happens all the time, so brother don't be amazed

You caught the vapors (vapors)
(Now guess what they caught?)
You caught the vapors (vapors)
(Now-now-now guess what they caught?)
Me and my whole clique, we checkin' papers

(Now guess what they caught, caught) Vapors
(Now-, what-, now-, what-, now guess what they caught) The vapors

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
