Now heres a story all about how
My life got flipped right upside down
And Id like to take a minute just sit right there
All tell you all about how I becamse the Prince of Bel Air
In West Philadelphia born an raised
On the playground I liked to spend most of my days
Chillin out maxin and relaxin all cool
While shootin some bballs outside of the school
When a couple a guys they were up to no good
Started makin trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one lil fight and my mom got scared
She said "Your movin with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air!"
I begged and pleaded with her, day after day,
But she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way,
She gave me a kiss and then she gave my ticket,
I put my walkman on and said I might as well kick it.
First class, you this is bad,
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
If this is what the people of Bel- Air are living like..
hmm.... this might be alright.
But wait I hear the prissy, bougwa and all that that.
Is this the type of place that they should send this cool cat?
Well I dunno, I'll see when I get there, I hope they'reprepared
For the Prince of Bel-air.
I stepped off the plane and when I got out,
There was a dude- look like a cop,
Standing there with my name out.
I ain't trying to get arrested yet,
I just got here.
So I sprang with the quickness of light and disappeared.
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
I noticed the liscense plate said "Fresh"
And the dice on the dice on the mirror
If anything would saythat this cab was rare
But I thought man forget it, yo home to Bel Air
I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I said to the cabby "Yo homie smell ya later."
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit at my throne as the Prince of Bel Air...
