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 the playground is where i spent most of my days
chillin' out max and 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
Your moving 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
drinkin orange juice out of a champagne class
is this what the people of Bel-Air livin like?
hmmmm... this might be alright
but wait i hear they're prissy
and all that
is this the type of place they should send this cool cat?
i dont think so
i see what i get there
i hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

the plane landed and when i came out
there was a dude that looked like a cop standin there with my name out
i aint tryin to get arrested yet i just got here
i sprang with the quickness of lightning disappeared
i whistled for a cab and when it came near
the liscense plate said Fresh
and it had dice in the mirror
if anything i could say that this cab was rare but naa, forget it Yo homes to Bel-Air

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
and i yelled to the cabby Yo homes smell ya later
i looked at my kingdom
i was finally there
to sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-Air
