When we were kids, we handpainted strawberries on a swing

from Frank Ocean – Strawberry Swing Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This song jumps directly into the major motif of the album: nostalgia.

Frank reminisces about when he was younger, when things were simpler. He reinforces the carelessness of childhood with the hand painting a strawberry on a swing — typical kids stuff!

This of course bears similarities to the seminal Beatles song “Strawberry Fields Forever,” which was about John Lennon’s childhood memories of playing in a garden.
