The following lyrics are to be sung to the tune of ‘Ice, Ice, Baby’ by Vanilla Ice.
Yo, A. I. P, Let’s kick it. Nice, nice, maybe? Nice, nice, maybe? We need to stop, collaborate and listen, Our race is dying and our voice is missing. Let us grab a hold of this tightly, flames are burning high, daily and nightly. We need to make it stop, Yo, do you know We will take it to the top, and we will show them, We have the rights and we know them. Deadly with the sounds of our memory, Any less respect for our people is a felony, To the extreme, we will uncover their scandal Light up our Land with a flame they can’t handle. Dance, Shake up the room, til the lies go boom. Love us or leave us, we have much to say, They need to listen cause we're not here to play. Yes, there has been a problem. They need to solve it, Check out the hook, because our people will revolve it. Nice, nice, maybe? Nice, nice, maybe? Nice...

Yo, VIP, let's kick it! Ice ice baby Ice ice baby All right stop Collaborate and listen Ice is back with my brand new invention Something grabs a hold of me tightly Then I flow that a harpoon daily and nightly Will it ever stop? Yo, I don't know Turn off the lights and I'll glow To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle Dance Bum rush the speaker that booms I'm killin' your brain like a poisonous mushroom Deadly, when I play a dope melody Anything less that the best is a felony Love it or leave it You better gain way You better hit bull's eye The kid don't play If there was a problem Yo, I'll solve it Check out the hook while my DJ revolves it Ice ice baby Vanilla Ice ice baby Vanilla Ice ice baby Vanilla Ice ice…
