Simple Joys (Pippin)

by Matthew Rousu

The Singer is describing a couple economic issues in this song. First, despite having power and material wealth, the subject of this song isn't happy. This song might be good to lead into a discussion of the diminishing marginal utility of money or wealth. It also illustrates trade-offs, as the singer asks a series of "would you rather" questions.
