In chapter 5, what is significant about Klipspringer's song?
1 Answer | Add Yours
The song is ironic for several reasons. First, the lyrics refer to people who have little money but manage to live happy lives. Gatsby and Daisy are both enormously wealthy, yet their lives are not happy. It also reminds us that ironically Daisy originally rejected him because he had no money. Now, however, she is happily awed by his mansion and beautiful shirts and clearly attracted to Gatsby again. Klipspringer plays this lighthearted song as Gatsby and Daisy celebrate their reunion, but their getting together again is not spontaneous because Gatsby has carefully orchestrated it.
The website listed below provides the lyrics for the entire song.
