Now, this is a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
And I liked 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 was where I spent most of my days
Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool
And all shooting 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
She 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 suite case and send 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 Living like?
Hmm, this might be alright.
But wait I hear they’re prissy, bourgeois, all that
Is Bel-Air the type of place they 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 who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
I ain’t trying 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 can say this cab is rare
But I thought ‘Now 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
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air
