  • [Verse 1]
    Crank it up, yo, and let me hear that system bump
    'cause with this here I gotta get over the hump
    And you know what that means (that means)
    Kickin' out funky rhymes "G" (rhymes "G")
    I got the funky rhymes that'll please (that'll please)
    And my jams break overseas (overseas)
    So when I come to town be prepared to be hyped up
    'cause when the mic's turned on I get psyched up (psyched up)
    The V.I.P. gets it started with intro
    Bustin' smooth moves on top of instrumental
    Turn up the beats in the Jeeps louder
    Here we go y'all - with minutes of power

    Minutes of power

    [Verse 2]
    Minutes of power
    When I step to the mic - bro
    Vanilla Ice does it right
    And what I'm sayin' is - Yo!
    Ya suckers frontin' what ya wantin' is for me to fade
    Thought I was outta here fools
    I ain't goin' away
    Back with the track that will keep my bank fat
    HA! Vanilla's got the flavor for the funky format
    And if you're not givin' up the credit I seek
    VIP's in the house and they're ready to creep
    Now whatcha gonna do when my boys are on you?
    You know a hard head makes for a soft shoe
    So turn it up for the passengers - LOUDER!
    It's Vanilla Killa with the Minutes of Power

    [Verse 3]
    Walk through the smoke on the stage
    And the girls scream
    Ice gets 'em hot, then they melt like ice cream
    Flowin' with the swiftness
    Kickin' it with the quickness
    Fella's gettin jealous cause their girlies want a quick kiss
    When I'm rolllin' around in my 5.0 drop top
    Turning up the sounds
    'cause I want to bump the hip hop
    People gettin' mad 'cause they hear the big bass hit
    I turn it up more just to let cha know I won't quit
    Ice has got it locked down and there's no stoppin' it
    When I hear a track like this
    You know that I'll be rocking it
    Sounds so sweet, it could never be sour
    Here we go y'all with the
    M.......minutes of power

    [Verse 4]
    Now's the time for the Ice to let a rhyme rip
    Loadin' up my lyrics with a 9 double M clip
    Shootin' all enemies, you're not even a friend of me
    I ain't Spike Lee so I do the wrong thing, G
    So down with Luther Campbell OH NO
    I don't think so
    Travel state to state an' and the Ice man rips shows
    Steppin' in my path an' you might get broken
    I got it goin' on an' you know I ain't jokin
    Power every hour an' the Ice keeps risin
    Sellin' out arenas so don't look surprised
    When Vanilla shows up an' the place explodes
    An' if ya missed it - catch the next episode!
    Gather up your troops
    Rush 'em to the record store
    An' pick up the new LP from the Ice Man
    So let the funk flow louder
    And let me hit cha - hit cha - hit cha
    With the, with the

    Minutes (x3) Minutes of Power
