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 Fresh Prince of Persia.

In Mesopotamia, born and raised

On the battle field where I spent most of my days

Conquerin' the neighbors, hangin' with my bros

Capturing the princess, as everybody knows

When my uncle killed dad - he was up to no good

Started making trouble in my neighborhood.

I'm blamed for one little murder and my bros get mad

They said, "Seize this little punk for the murder of our dad!"

I snatched this cool dagger and when the sand got all clear

I could turn back the clock, but not by a year

If anything I could say that this knife was rare

But I thought, "Nah, forget it - get that dude with no hair!"

I worked with the princess to fix all this shit

I yelled to my uncle "Yo homes, smell you later!"

I was savin' my kingdom with this time-travel knife

And the princess did her part by savin' my life.
