Intet er nytt under solen was the Norwegian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1966 in Luxembourg performed by Åse Kleveland.

It was performed sixth on the night following Yugoslavia and preceding Finland. At the close of voting, it finished in 3rd place with 15 votes, Norway's best result since its debut. That record stood until 1985 when Bobbysocks! won in Gothenburg, but because of Åse's success she was rewarded with the opportunity to host the 1986 contest which was held in Bergen.

Lyrics

Jeg vet om en gammel mann, en som har levd lenge
Jeg vet om en gammel mann, en som har levd lenge
Han er så snill når han spør meg om hva som har hendt meg
Og om solen har brent meg

Jeg prater og søker trøst, han gynger i stolen
Han sier med sprukken røst: "Intet er nytt under solen"

Men hva har vel det å si om ting har hendt før meg?
Men hva har vel det å si om ting har hendt før meg?
Nei, det som gjør meg så vondt med alt det som han visste
At hans øyne er triste

Hva har jeg å vente på meg selv der i stolen?
Når han er så trist der nå, intet er nytt under solen

I know an old man, someone who has lived for a long time
I know an old man, someone who has lived for a long time
He's so kind asking me what has happened to me
And if the sun had burnt me

I talk and seek comfort, he rocks in his chair
He says with a broken voice: "There's nothing new under the sun"

But what does it matter if things happened before me?
But what does it matter if things happened before me?
No, what makes me hurt so much with all that he knew
That his eyes were sad

What can expect myself in that rocking chair?
When he's so sad there now, there's nothing new under the sun
