"Sangen om dig" ("The song about you") was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1964, performed in Danish by Bjørn Tidmand.

The song was performed fourth on the night, following Norway's Arne Bendiksen with "Spiral" and preceding Finland's Lasse Mårtenson with "Laiskotellen". At the close of voting, it had received 4 points, placing 9th in a field of 16.

The song is a love ballad, with Tidmand singing that the song about his lover can never end because it would "never get everything said".
