M-R-S dot Kennedy, she signed her name in pen
In a fancy fancy cursive,
When she signed her name (in pen, symbolizing that it’s something that won’t be changed) she didn’t sign using his last name (“Mrs. Ocean”). She still used her maiden name, which may be interpreted as a feminist move, but in this case it foreshadows what she’s about to tell him in the car.
Plus, you can’t get more American than the Kennedys. This family adds the perfect combination of beauty and sophistication (like that fancy cursive) with a dark backdrop of tragedy beneath the surface. They embody most of the ideas in this song and you could easily see it being written about one of them.
