[Michael Bivins] Yeah, Spiderman and Freeze in full effect
[Ronnie DeVoe] Uh-huh
[Ricky Bell] You ready, Ron?
[DeVoe] I'm ready
[Bell] You ready, Biv?
[Bivins] I'm ready, Slick, are you?
[Bell] Oh, yeah, break it down

[Ricky Bell - Verse One]
Girl, I, must
(warrrrrn yoooooooooou)
I sense something strange in my mind
Situation is (seriooooooooous)
Let's cure it 'cause we're running out of time
It's oh, so (beautifuuuuuuuuul)
Relationships they seem from the start
It's all so (deadllllllllly)
When love is not together from the heart

It's drivin' me out of my mind!
That's why it's HARD for me to find
Can't get it out of my head!
Miss her, kiss her, love her
(Wrong move you're dead!)

Never trust a big butt and smile
("POISON!!" - Kool G. Rap)

[Verse Two]
[If I were you I'd take pre-]
Before I start to meet fly girl, you know?
'Cause in some (portiooooooooooons)
You'll think she's the best thing in the world

She's so - (flyyyyyyyyyyyy)
She'll drive you right out of your mind
and steal your heart when you're blind
Beware she's schemin', she'll make you think you're dreamin'
YOU'LL fall in love and you'll be screamin', demon, HOO..

[Ronnie Devoe - Rap Verse 1]
Poison, deadly, movin it slow
Lookin for a mellow fellow like DeVoe
Gettin paid, laid, so better lay low
Schemin on house, money, and the whole show
The low pro hoe she'll be cut like an aaa-FRO
See what you're sayin', huh, she's weighin' you
But I know she's a loser (How do you know?)
Me and the crew used to do her!

("POISON!!" - Kool G. Rap)

[Mixing of Kool G. Rap's "POISON!!"]

[Michael Bivins]
I was at the bar, shake, breakin and takin 'em all
And that night, I played the wall
Checkin out the fellas, the highs and lows
Keepin one eye open, still clockin' the hoes
There was one particular girl that stood out from the rest
Poison as can be, the high power chest
Michael Biv here and I'm runnin' the show
Bell, Biv DeVoe [*Ronnie laughs*] you know!
Yo, Slick, blow..

[Hook and chorus]

[B.B.D. adlibs]
Yo' fellas, that was my end of..
You know what I'm sayin', Mike?
Yeah, B.B.D. in full effect
Yo', wassup to Ralph T and Johnny G
And I can't forget about my boy, B. Brown
and the whole NE crew
