You flew ten thousand K's
You arrived on Sunday afternoon
And the best that I could do
Was make a cup of tea for you

We were tired and yawning
We watched the sun come up on new years morning
What a bloody great weekend!
You made my hair stand up on end

Why does there have to be
All this water between you and me?
I can sometimes swim the pool
Jump the fence right after school

Ooooh, Minka oh oh
Ooooh, Minka oh oh
Let's explore every inch of Berlin
Should we go out, or should we stay in?

Where is the transit desk?
Turkish Airlines took me to Tehran
I can't wait to hold your arm
You left me suitably impressed

So I'll have to look my best
I can't​ wait to see you in the flesh
Now is totally the time
To do what we can't do online

Nearer than we've ever been
You've never seen such antics quite like these
You're a strong and lusty girl
We'll travel all around the world


It's raining quite a bit
Your apartment overlooks the street
On the day when I arrived
You weren't the girl that I admired

You knew that I was coming
Half a year you let our feelings stew
Berlin is kind of good but nothing
That you said to me was true

I was like a souvenir
Maybe it was Melbourne that you liked
Like a stupid stuffed koala
Hanging from the dashboard of your life

I was feeling really jetlagged
Everything was really European
You wouldn't even hold my hand
I spent the day at the museum
