"What Do the Simple Folk Do?," from the Lerner and Loewe musical Camelot, is a song about a royal couple (originally King Arthur and Queen Guenevere) who are trying to distract each other from the burdens of the ruling class. It was originally performed on Broadway by Julie Andrews and Richard Burton.

Zero Mostel, in the role of the king, performs "What Do the Simple Folk Do?" with the Queen on episode 202 of The Muppet Show. In this appearance, the Queen is voiced by Richenda Carey as part of her audition for the show. Muppy is also featured.
