G                    D
Now this is a story, all about how 
C                    G
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
Verse 1:
G                     D
In west Philadelphia, born and raised
C                                G
On a playground is where I spent most of my days
G                     D
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
C                    G
playing some b-ball outside of the school
Em                    C
When a couple of guys they were up to no good
Em                     C
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
G                                Em
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
                D                           G
And said you’re moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air

Verse 2:
G                        D                     C
I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said fresh
G                              G                         D
and had dice in the mirror, if anything I could say this cab was rare
C                                 G
but I thought nah, forget it. Yo, home to bel-air!

Instrumental: G  Em  D  G

Verse 3:
G                            D
I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
C                          G
I yelled to the cabbie, yo homes, smell you later
G                          Em
looked at my kingdom I was finally there
     D                     G
to sit on my throne as the prince of bel-air
