IN THE LEAGUE of footballers recording songs this one will go down as a legend.

Former Ireland star Kevin Kilbane was a viral hit today with his rap rendition of Ice Ice Baby at Euro 2012 in Gdansk, Poland.



BBC journalist Conor McNamara recorded the performance on his mobile phone and uploaded it to YouTube.



Fans reckon the performance is just what Robbie Keane and the lads need to inspire them as they take on Spain tomorrow night.



Ice Ice Baby, by American rapper Vanilla Ice was the first hip-hop single to top the Billboard charts.



And if you want to join in with rapper Kevin, the lyrics go like this:



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 baby Vanilla



Now that the party is jumping

With the bass kicked in, the Vegas are pumpin'

Quick to the point, to the point no faking

I'm cooking MC's like a pound of bacon

Burning them if they're not quick and nimble

I go crazy when I hear a cymbal

And a hi hat with a souped up tempo

I'm on a roll and it's time to go solo

Rollin in my 5.0

With my ragtop down so my hair can blow

The girlies on standby

Waving just to say hi

Did you stop?

No, I just drove by

Kept on pursuing to the next stop

I busted a left and I'm heading to the next block

That block was dead



Yo so I continued to a1a Beachfront Ave

Girls were hot wearing less than bikinis

Rock man lovers driving Lamborghini

Jealous 'cause I'm out getting mine

Shay with a gauge and Vanilla with a nine

Ready for the chumps on the wall

The chumps are acting ill because they're so full of eight balls

Gunshots ranged out like a bell

I grabbed my nine

All I heard were shells

Fallin' on the concrete real fast

Jumped in my car, slammed on the gas

Bumper to bumper the avenue's packed

I'm tryin' to get away before the jackers jack

Police on the scene

You know what I mean

They passed me up, confronted all the dope fiends

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 baby Vanilla



Take heed, 'cause I'm a lyrical poet

Miami's on the scene just in case you didn't know it

My town, that created all the bass sound

Enough to shake and kick holes in the ground

'Cause my style's like a chemical spill

Feasible rhymes that you can vision and feel

Conducted and formed

This is a hell of a concept

We make it hype and you want to step with this

Shay plays on the fade, slice it like a ninja

Cut like a razor blade so fast

Other DJ's say, "damn"

If my rhyme was a drug

I'd sell it by the gram

Keep my composure when it's time to get loose

Magnetized by the mic while I kick my juice

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 baby Vanilla



Yo man, let's get out of here

Word to your mother



Ice ice baby

Too cold

Ice ice baby

Too cold too cold

Ice ice baby

Too cold

Ice ice baby

Too cold too cold
