The Fresh Princess of Jersey City

You may be wondering how we got here? Why Jersey City? Why now? Well, that’s its own story. First, start humming the theme song to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Got it going? Ready? Let’s go.

Now, this is a story all about how Our lives got infused with so much ‘Pow!’ And I’d like to take a minute You just sit pretty While I explain why we moved over to Jersey City

Down in Tribeca is where we were based On the playground was where I spent most of my days Chillin’ out maxin’ ‘n’ relaxin’ all cool And changing those diapers outside of preschool 

When we suddenly woke up and realized ‘no good!’ Rent is ridiggy in our neighborhood We said enough of Manhattan, it’s time to explore What’s on the other side of these Hudson River shores 

We whistled for a cab and when it came near The three of us jumped in and said, ‘get us out of here!’ If anything the cabbie just looked back with pity When we said to head for the tunnel, yo home to Jersey City 

Now we got three times the space at half of the rent Our happiness has jumped to 100 percent Each day we look around and think with good cheer The best choice we ever made was moving over here
