"Va dire à l'amour" ("Go Tell Love") was the Monegasque entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1965, performed in French by French singer Marjorie Noël.[1]

The song is in the chanson mode, popular in the early years of the Contest. Noël asks her (unidentified) listener to "tell love" that she is waiting for him and that she is seventeen, she describes the dramatic feelings she hopes will be involved in their eventual meeting. Noël also recorded the song in German, as "Wann kommst du zu mir".

The song was performed ninth on the night (following Belgium's Lize Marke with "Als het weer lente is" and preceding Sweden's Ingvar Wixell with "Absent Friend"). At the close of voting, it had received 7 points, placing 9th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Monegasque representative at the 1966 Contest by Téréza with "Bien plus fort".
