This is repeated twice for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is: a/b/c/a/b/c for each of the two stanzas.

Was born and raised in Manila
With siblings and cousins
We used to eats lots of guavas
We played under the sun
Full of glee

Childhood memories in our hearts
Cycling, playing, dancing
First love
First date, first kiss till we depart
We’re full of spring and zing
Young love
