The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is a popular TV show that launched Will Smith into stardom. It ran for six seasons and now airs in syndication. It’s one of those shows that always seems to be on some channel or another no matter what time of the day it is. The show is entertaining, but the highlight of each episode is the theme song. It sets up the premise of the show and tells the story of how Will’s life got twisted upside down. It involves playing basketball outside of the school, getting in one little fight, and his scared mom sending him to live with his aunt and uncle in Bel-Air. Everyone thinks that they know the whole song, but the show cuts out a few stanzas that you didn’t know existed. You can listen to the whole thing on YouTube if you really want to. I’m not going to stop you. The show is good. The song is better.
