Now this is a story all about how
my life got flipped-turned upside down
and I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there,
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air.

In West Philadelphia, born and raised, on a playground was where I spent most of my days.
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool and all,
shootin' some b-ball outside of the school.
When a couple of guys who were up to no good
started making trouble in my neighborhood.
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said,
"You're 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 me my ticket,
I put my Walkman on and said,
"I might as well kick it."
First class, yo, this is bad!
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Bel-Air livin' like?
Hmm, this might be alright.

But wait, I hear they're prissy, bourgeois and all that.
Is this the type of place that they should send this cool cat?
I don't think so, I'll see when I get there.
I hope they're prepared for the Prince of Bel-Air.

Well, uh,

the plane landed and when I came out
there was a dude looked like a cop standin' there with my name out.
I ain't tryin' to get arrested yet, I just got here.
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared.
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
the license plate said, "FRESH," and it had dice in the mirror.
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
but I thought,
"Nah, forget it.
Yo, homes to Bel-Air!"

I pulled

up to the house about seven or eight and I yelled to the cabbie,
"Yo homes, smell ya' later!"
Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there,

to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air.
