This song is so cute, to me personally. It shows a daily struggle of a young boy. We all know the feeling, as we were all children before. We always had the guidance of our parents through our small struggles and our parents always taught us the right and wrong things to do. Without them, we’d just be irresponsible, immature people.
In this song, a young boy’s day in his life is shown. First, he wakes up to his mother making breakfast for him and his father telling him to say his morning greetings, claiming they were magical charms just as his mom tells him to say his “thanks-for-the-food” phrases. Both parents claimed that these “magical charms/spices” allowed him to smile for the whole day (from this, we can guess the kid is pretty well mannered). It proceeds with the boy saying that “there’s a ‘good morning’ for every ‘good night’ and a ‘thanks for the meal’ for every ‘the food was good'”. I guess this could mean be polite and appreciate the things your parents provide for you?
Of course, there has to be a struggle in this little, happy song. The poor boy. His toy broke and hit his little lady friend by accident. The girl runs off crying (in pain?) and he didn’t even get the chance to apologize. He cries as well as he tumbles into a dark circle of regret and loneliness. Of course, it’s papa to the rescue (and mama)! Both encourage him to go to the girl’s house and apologize. And so he does and everything becomes happy, happy and fluffy, fluffy again. The song ends with a cute scene of the boy giving a flower to the girl and they both say ‘thank you’ to each other (by this point, I’m squealing because it’s so cute).
I believe this song is a great example of family because it shows the care and love a parent has for their children and the support they give in order to raise us up well. So give this song a listen and perhaps tell me how you felt about it? I’d love some input! Goodbye for now!
