The Pharcyde
Passin’ Me By
[Verse 1: Bootie Brown]
Now in my younger days, I used to sport a shag
When I went to school I carried lunch in a bag
With an apple for my teacher 'cause I knew I'd get a kiss
Always got mad when the class was dismissed
But when it was in session, I always had a question
I would raise my hand to make her stagger to my desk and
Help me with my problem, it was never much
Just a trick, to smell her scent and try to sneak a touch
Oh, how I wish I could hold her hand and give her a hug
She was married to the man, he was a thug
His name was Lee, he drove a Z
He'd pick her up from school promptly at 3 o'clock
I was on her jock, yes indeedy I wrote graffiti on the bus
First I'd write her name then carve a plus
With my name last, on the looking glass
I seen her yesterday but still, I had to let her pass

[Verse 2: 2-D]
Everybody's here with me
We've got no camera to see
Don't think I'm all in this world
The camera won't let me roll
The verdict doesn't love our soul
The digital won't let me go
[Chorus 2: 2-D]
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'll pay
When tomorrow
Tomorrow comes today
