The theme song and opening sequence explains the context of the show. Will Smith is revealed as a street-smart teenager, born and raised on the mean streets of West Philadelphia, while the plot of the story is shown and rapped in the theme song. The theme song was written and performed by The Fresh Prince (Will Smith). The music was composed by Quincy Jones III, who is credited at the end of each episode. An additional credit at the end of episodes also reads "Theme song written by Will Smith", in regard to the lyrics, with no reference to DJ Jazzy Jeff. The music often used to bridge scenes together during the show is also based on a similar chord structure as the theme song. The full version of the theme song, telling how he went on a plane to Bel-Air, was only used on the first three episodes of the show, although Will Smith did record it as an unreleased B-side. And then his mom got scared, 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 said 'FRESH' and it had dice in the mirror if anything he can say this cab is rare but he thought 'Now forget it' - 'Yo homes to Bel Air' I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and he yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later' he looked at his kingdom he was finally there to settle his throne as the Prince of Bel Air .

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] In west Philadelphia born and raised
In the playground where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside the school
When a couple of guys, they were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
She said "You're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-air"
[Verse 2] I whistled for a cab and when it came near the
License plate said "fresh" and had dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought nah, forget it, yo homes to Bel-air!
[Outro] I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby "Yo, homes smell you later!"
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-air
