Now this is the 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 Philadelfia, born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some Bb-ball outside of the school

When a couple of guys said, we're up in no good
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said, "You're moving with your aunty and uncle in Bel Air"

I begged and pleaded with her the other 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 are livin' like
Hmm, this might be alright!

[Incomprehensible]
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 I, the plane landed and when I came out
There was dude look like a cop standing waving my name out
I ain't trying to get arrest of you, I just got here
Spring with the quickness like [Incomprehensible] dissappear

I whistled for a cab and when it came near the
License plate said fresh and had a dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought now forget it, yo home to Bel Air

I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby yo, home smell you later
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To settle my throne as the prince of Bel Air
