DJ Jazzy Jeff & 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 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 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 living like?
Hmm, this might be alright

But wait I hear they're prissy, bourgeois, all that
Is this the type of place that they just 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, 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 could say that this cab was rare
But I thought, "Nah, forget it"
– "Yo, home to Bel-Air"

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie, "Yo home smell ya later"
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air

    Will always remember this being on straight after 'The Simpsons' (Back in the mid-to late '90s), when both shows used to be on BBC 2, back in the day, here in the UK. It used to be The Simpsons at 6pm-6:25pm (No adverts), then this was on straight after. Although I never watched this as I was a kid and was only interested in 'The Simpsons' as it's a cartoon

  62. Ashley Joyner

    Saw this on Reddit today...mind blown!

    "You know how Will Smith moves to L.A. in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air because he gets in a lil' scrap with some neighborhood troublemakers and his mother sends him across the nation in fear?

    That's because they were gang members. Will Smith was a young black man in West Philadelphia in the early 90's, and he easily could have been killed for insulting some gang members.

    One of the goofiest shows ever aired was based on the duality of a boy who was sheltered by his incredibly affluent family after he was forced to flee his home for fear of being shot by gang members.

    Real shit, man.

    ...... just fyi

  87. Grandas Girl

    Hahahaha the Gaston of bell green lmao

  88. TDE 04

    I swear he looks like that guy from Gemini man?

  89. Jay McBride

    Fresh Prince of Bel Air had the better writing and storylines and better team...Quincy Jones. But, the Martin Lawrence sitcom "Martin" was the funniest sitcom ever!!!! I'd rank "Martin" higher than Fresh Prince of Bel Air, though.

  90. AYBABTU

    Uncle Phil looks different.
