"Ka' du se hva' jeg sa'?" ("Can you see, (that's) what I told you?", literally: "Do you see what I said?") was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, performed in Danish by Kirsten & Søren (a duo who had previously entered as Hot Eyes).

The song was performed thirteenth on the night, following Austria's Wilfried with "Lisa Mona Lisa" and preceding Greece's Afroditi Frida with "Clown". At the close of voting, it had received 92 points, placing 3rd in a field of 21.

The song describes a particularly difficult personality type — who "knows everything for certain" and "whistles if it turns out you're at fault". Over the course of the song, this person is gradually revealed to be the person to whom the song is being sung in the first place.

The performance is perhaps more memorable for the fact that the female half of the duo (Kirsten Siggard) was heavily pregnant at the time and would give birth only three weeks after the contest.

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1989 Contest by Birthe Kjær with "Vi maler byen rød".
