High School Days

I'm not a Sharon Cuneta fan, but this song just came to my mind...

High school life, oh my high school life
Every memory kay ganda
High school days, oh my high school days
Are exciting kay saya
There are times may problema ka
Kung ang homework left undone
Pray ka lang, wag tawagin ka
Upang di pagtawanan.

High school love, my one high school love
Not infatuation or crush
Tunay 'to, siya ang buhay ko
Di niyo lang alam ako'y nagba-blush
Bakit nga ba ang first love ko
Ay di serious, so it seems?
Kung alam lang ng first love ko
He is always in my dreams.

Ang saya ng high school several years in my high school
Di na mapapantayan
Tiyak ganyan ang buhay na sadyang makulay
Alaala kailan man.

High school life, ba't ang high school life
Ay walang kasing saya
Bakit kung graduation na'y
Luluha kang talaga?

omigosh jo, menudo group reminds me of not so long ago when I was at a resto with my dad and saw this menudo pepsi poster and I wouldn't want to go home without it in my hands. My dad, being the "yes" dad to his only girl went up to the manager and asked the poster. All the way home, I clung to the poster as if my life depended on it. The poster was in my bedroom until 1997. It's so nice to travel down memory lane. I

hi vanessa/kai,

Glad to know that you guys were also into Menudo. I remember having a scrapbook of their pictures and songs and bio-data! Hmmmmm... I know I didn't throw them out, but I don't know where it is now.

I was fan of Sharon Cuneta. Lahat na movie n'ya ay pinapanood ko noon sa sinehan. Kasi wala pang TV noon sa probinsya eh! Electricity nga hindi pa available...

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday to you!
Happy birthday, Happy Birthday,
Happy Birthday to you!
