Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince - Fresh Prince Of Bel Air Theme Song lyrics

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 become 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 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 makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom scared
and said
"Ya movin' wit ya 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 give me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket
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 glass
Is this what the people of Bel-Air livin' like?
Hmmm this might be alright!

But wait I hear they're prissy, booze-wine, all that
Is this the type of place that they just sent 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 lightening 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 "Man, forget it, yo homes to Bel-Air!"
I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 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
