Mil Etter Mil was the Norwegian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1978 in Paris performed by Jahn Teigen. It was his first of his three appearances at the contest, and is best known for his energetic performance despite the song itself being a ballad.

The song was performed second on the night, following Ireland and preceding Italy. It eventually finished last with Nul Points.

Ironically, despite not being able to earn a single point in the contest, the song became a huge hit in Norway, peaking at #1 and staying for 20 weeks on the Norwegian chart. Because of this, many fans and people in the Eurovision media consider Teigen to be the most famous "Nul Pointer" in the contest's history.

Lyrics

Hvil deg nå, du er sliten
Hvil din kropp før din kraft ebber ut
Vann pipler inn i dine sko
Du vandrer i regn

Mil etter mil etter mil
Etter mil etter mil etter mil

Søk mot meg hvis du lengter
Rett ditt sinn mot et annet sted
Komm hit hvor jeg er, hvor solen er nær
Du må ikke gå

Mil etter mil etter mil
Etter mil etter mil etter mil

Og det er langt å gå
Det er lengselen som driver deg
Mot et lys som du kan se, men ikke jeg

Tenk deg om nå hvor farer du hen
Du har vandret altfor lenge

Mil etter mil etter mil
Etter mil etter mil etter mil

Tenk deg om nå hvor farer du hen
Du har vandret altfor lenge

Mil etter mil etter mil
Etter mil etter mil etter mil
Etter mil etter mil etter mil
Etter mil etter mil etter mil
Etter mil

Rest now, you are worn out
Rest your body, before your power ebbs out
Water is trickling into your shoes
You are walking in the rain

Mile after mile after mile
After mile after mile after mile

Search me if you’re longing
Think in a different direction
Come here, where I am, where the sun is near
You can’t go

Mile after mile after mile
After mile after mile after mile

And it’s far to go
It is your longing that drives you
Towards a light that you see, but I can’t

Just think, where will you end
You have walked too long

Mile after mile after mile
After mile after mile after mile

Just think, where will you end
You have walked too long

Mile after mile after mile
After mile after mile after mile
After mile after mile after mile
After mile after mile after mile
After mile
