Song of the Family

"Remember When" by Alan Jackson

"Remember When" Lyrics

(You do NOT have to write every single lyric here - just the important parts that you will talk about from the song!)

Remember when we vowed the vows
and walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Remember when

Remember when the sound of little feet
was the music
We danced to week to week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
Remember when

"Remember When": The Song of the Family (Title should follow same format)

(Paragraph One: Explanation of the "Song" from the novel):

In The Pearl, Kino hears The Song of the Family whenever he feels comfort and peace. This usually takes place whenever Juana is caring for their son, Coyotito, or they are going about their daily lives in their brush house. The Song of the Family signifies peacefulness and contentment for Kino. (Use words like: signifies, represents, portrays, symbolizes).

(Paragraph Two: Explanation of the song you chose AND how it connects to the novel):

Much like The Song of the Family, "Remember When" has similar representations throughout the song. Alan Jackson sings of marriage, and that although hearts often become broken, there was still joy, much like Kino seems to feel. Furthermore, the lyrics state that the sound of little feet was the music to their lives. Coyotito seems to be the centering focal point in Kino and Juana's lives, and much of his joy comes from moments where we read of Coyotito and Juana - Kino's beloved family.
