Story Behind the Song

What happened leading up to the summit

Lyrics

Tale Of Two Kims

I've been in my new job for some considerable time
There's been a few challenges along the way
There's been some humps, there's been some bumps ,
Things haven't always been fine
But there's something that I just have to say

The most ambitious task I've taken on, I suppose
Involved a powerful person everybody knows
My advisors arranged a meeting, so much at stake
Much too late I realised I'd made a big mistake


Chorus


I thought Kim Jong-un was a Kardashian
I thought she was a reality star
Thought she'd be dressed in something sassy and
I thought we were meeting in a bar

Thought Sentosa Island was off the Florida Keys
But the plane took longer than I'd normally want
When an Oriental guy came over and beckoned to me
Thought he was a waiter in a Chinese restaurant

Verse

I couldn't reveal oooh the surprise of all surprises
We sat and talked like we were on the same team
When I said I'd put a stop to any more exercises
I thought he was just worried about my fitness regime


We talked, he said he would welcome better relations
Said I'd be happy to meet him on another occasion
And when he asked if I'd show him a gesture of good faith
I passed him a key to the White House during our farewell embrace

Chorus

I thought Kim Jong Un was a Kardashian
I thought she was a reality star
I thought he'd be dressed in something sassy and
I thought we were meeting in a bar

Thought Sentosa Island was off the Florida Keys
But the plane took much longer than I'd normally want
And when an Oriental guy came walking over to me
I thought he was a waiter in a Chinese restaurant


I said "Egg foo yung and fries is what I want"

Thought he was a waiter in a Chinese restaurant
