"Dis rien" (English translation: "Say nothing") was the Monegasque entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1962, performed in French by French singer François Deguelt. The song was composed by noted French jazz guitarist and singer Henri Salvador.

The song is in the chanson style popular in the early years of the Contest. Deguelt tells his lover to "say nothing" while they are in each other's company, as their love is enough for both of them to appreciate without words.

The song was performed sixteenth on the night, following Italy's Claudio Villa with "Addio, addio". At the close of voting, it had received 13 points, placing 2nd in a field of 16 - only half the total of Isabelle Aubret's "Un premier amour" for France.

It was succeeded as Monegasque representative at the 1963 Contest by Françoise Hardy with "L'amour s'en va".
