Lyrics:
Now this is the story all about how
my life got flipped turned upside down
And Id like to take a minute
Just sit right there
Ill tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bellingham

On west hill of kent born and raised
On the canvas is where I spent most of my days
Chillin out maxin relaxin all cool
Doin art makin my way through school
But my school was small
It wasnt no good
Wanna move up like any kid would
I wanted a school with some diversity
My mom said check out Western Washington University

I went to the website and it looked legit
I said to myself this could be a good fit!
I went to go visit, got my bus ticket
Put in my headphones said I might as well kick it!

First impression, yo this is rad
I could see myself here, goin to class
They got an art program that I like
Hmmmm this might be alright

Art is my thing, design and all that
And for that sorta thing, Westerns where its at!
So im stoked
This sounds like a plan
I hope theyre prepared, for the PRINCE of Bellingham!

So at the end of the summer im ready to go there
Hopefully displayin my art at red square
Im tryna make it big
Show my art to the world
I really think western can make that dream unfurl

So now I cant wait for the end of the year
To begin the long journey of my art career
Now yall betta be doin all that you can
To join me next year up in Bellingham!

So WWU is the school for me
Perfect size good teachers and diversity!
Cant wait to get there
And ready I am
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bellingham!
