"Passing Me By" was the most successful single by hip hop group the Pharcyde. It hit #53 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks in 1993. It also had significant airplay on Modern Rock/Alternative stations in the United States, a rare accomplishment for a hip-hop song.
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
