Now this is the story all about how
My life got turned right upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sitting right here
To tell you how I became 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.
Chewin' out max and relaxin' all cool
I was shootin' some b-ball outside of a 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 got scared
And she said "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air".
I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate set "Fresh" and had set of 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 cabbie, "Yo homes, smell ya later"
I looked at my kingdom, I was the finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air.

You can enjoy this version that has a slight change in the lyrics
West Philidelphia born an' raised,
The playground is where I spent most of my days,
Chillin out maxing, realxing o' coolin or shooting sum meatball outsida' the school,
When a couple of guys who were up to no good good,
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood,
I got in one little fight and my mum got scared and said:
She said your moving with Aunty and Uncle in Belair,.
I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate sed fresh and it had dice in'the'mirror.
I thought na forget it "yo homes-to Bel-air.
Pulled up to house about 7 o'8,
Yelled to the cabby "yo homes smell ya later.
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-air.
