Sorry Begbie, I was having connection troubles earlier and they weren't all loading... I just saw Chris' post of the lyrics first...

How about Acropolis Now? I'm making 'best' a very subjective term now...

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 prince of a town called Bel Air

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool
And all shootin some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who 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 movin' with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air'

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suit case and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
I put my Walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.

First class, yo this is bad
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Bel-Air living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.

But wait I hear they're prissy, bourgeois, all that
Is this the type of place that they just send this cool cat?
I don't think so
I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

Well, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
I ain't trying to get arrested yet
I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it 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'

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cabbie 'Yo homes smell ya later'
I looked at my kingdom
I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air

Yeah Nanny and Bel Air butlers were good. I kind of liked Cc Babcock in the nanny as well. Mind you I haven't watched the nanny for at least 10 years.

USELESS FACT - The Butler in the nanny was actually from Arkansas. He auditioned with the Niles accent and carried it on for about a month when he thought his job was safe, then let them know of his real accent.

Tv Theme - Surprised no one has mentioned this little ditty. It starts with "You know we belong together..."

It's hard to go past that cracking Barney Miller bass line but this one for guitar solo's and harmonica is good. If you go to the youtube site there's also some funny car chases.
