The following is the lyrics to the fan favorite theme song of the show:
The extended lines are in bold.
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'd 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', relaxing 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 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,
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass,
Is this what the people of Bel Air live like?
Hmm...this might be alright.
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, man, forget it, yo, home to Bel Air!"
I pulled up to a house around seven or eight,
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.
