Are you a fan of early-90’s family sitcom?

Do you remember the Fresh Prince episode when Carlton sang Tom Jones into the candlestick microphone?

No?

Then you should probably watch this:

 

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

 And I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bernal (Heights)

In central Wisconsin 7 months born and raised
On the Boppy is where I spent most of my days

(thanks Lynn for the Boppy and Mimi for the cups!)

 

Chillin out, maxin, relaxing all cool,

And all playing with some straws outside of the school

(thanks Leah for the psychedelic hand-knit Dino sweater!)

 

When a couple of aunties who were up to no good

 

Started making trouble in my neighborhood

 

I caused one little tornado and my mom got scared.

 

She said “We’re going to see your Daddy in Bernal Heights (so put on your sombrero).”

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The seat was too low and my aunties were still there.


If anything I could say this cab was rare
But I thought naw forget it — Yo homes, to Bernal!

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8


And I yelled to the cabby “Yo homes, smell ya later”
I looked at my Daddy, I was finally there


To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bernal.
