Passin' Me By

Lyrics

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

Now in my younger days I used to sport a shag

And I must voice my opinion of not even pretending she didn't have me
Strung like a chicken, chase my tail like a doggie
She was kind of like a star, thinking I was like a fan
Dude, she looked good, down side, she had a man
He was a rooty toot, a nincompoop
She told me soon your little birdies gonna fly the coop
She was a flake like corn, and I was born not to understand
By letting her pass I had proved to be a better man She keeps on passing me by

Every time I hear this song, the last verse makes me cringe on the end because we've all been there.

Why can't I like other people's comments? On FB I can laugh, cry, oh and get mad....with one click. Pandora get your s**t together. I, and collectively we, would rather listen to music all day and chat about music. If I have to read one more FB post about politics I'm gonna throw a fit.

Quite possibly the most relatable lyrics in a hip hop song. Not all guys get the girl all the time damn. Love the Pharcyyyde.
