Donald Trump's ascendancy to the White House has been explained through the lyrics of the theme song to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

We're not really sure what to add to that other than that people are loving it and sharing it.

Unlike a man moving from West Philadelphia streets to Bel Air finery, Donald Trump has moved from New York luxury to the White House.

So you can guess how it goes.

Here are the lyrics:

Now this is a story all about how

The world got flipped-turned upside down

And I'd like to take a minute

Just sit right there

I'll tell you all about the prick with the ridiculous hair

I was to a billionaire, born and raised

In the bankruptcy courts I spent most of my days

Chillin' out maxin' relaxin', a fool

And all groping some p***** outside of the school

With a couple of guys who were wearing the hood

I started blaming latins in your neighborhood

I dissed this disabled guy, but nobody cared

They said, 'He’s movin on the White House, but we’re still not scared.'

I whistled for a limo and when it came near

The license plate said 'Trump' and it had gold in the mirror

If anything I could say this ride was fine

But I thought, 'I’ve got billions'

– 'I’m elite, it’s all mine.'

I pulled up to the White House at 7 or 8

And I yelled at the driver, 'Go home, migrant labor.'

I looked at my kingdom

With the world in despair

To sit on my throne as the P**** with the hair

That's quite something.

The ballad was originally written by Neil Hardcastle on Facebook, and it has been shared over 98,000 times:

To cap it all, Donald Trump was once on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air:

How appropriate.

Here's the music without lead vocals so you can sing it yourself:
