Extended VersionEdit

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.
