Balloon Boy Meets the Fresh Prince of Bel Air

By now you’ve probably heard about the “Balloon Boy” scandal, the hours long chase of a runaway hot air balloon that supposedly had a six year old boy in it.  It turns out he was hiding in his parents attic in what may have been a publicity stunt.

Either way, it’s become the stuff of internet jokes.  Well, Linden McStephen parodied the first line of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song in his Facebook status, and his friends completed the parody.  Here it is for your amusement.

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Balloon Boy ThemeHere are the lyrics to the original Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song, and below that is transcript of the original.  You can also caption a pic of the Balloon Boy Balloon if you’re interested.

Original Fresh Prince Lyrics

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
Startin 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 whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I can say this cab is rare
But I thought “Naw 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

Parody Lyrics

And I’d like to take a minute
Just sit right there
And I’ll tell you how I took off
In a balloon filled with hot air

In eastern Colorado born and raised
Chasin’ tornadoes is how I spent most of my days
Chillin’ in a basket, laxin’ all cool
And shootin’ some helium out by the pool
When a couple of winds who were up to no good
Started pushing me out my neighborhood
I took one little flight and my mom got scared
She said “You’re moving with your new mom from Wife Swap in a balloon filled with hot air”

I fell out of a box and won’t turn 7 or 8
And I yelled to the balloon “Going down, smell ya later!”
They Google Earth’d me on Wolf Blitzer
I was finally there
Safe in my home known as the Prince of the Air
