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.
