Don’t be surprised if Alex Trebek asks to be called the “Fresh Prince of Jeopardy” from now on.

The Jeopardy! host couldn’t help but give a little flow to the Fresh prince of Bel-Air theme song lyrics when they appeared as a clue on the game show. And while Trebek doesn’t outright nail Will Smith’s timing — Trebek delivers the lines in more of a slow jam, poetry slam style — it’s good to know not even Trebek can help himself whenever the theme song comes up.

And in case you’d like to compare — or simply want to have the song stuck in your head all day — here’s the original theme song.
