"Do I Dream" (or "Do I Dream?", on the Eurovision official website) was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1973, performed in English by Maxi.

The song is sung from the perspective of a young woman whose lover has just confessed his feelings for her. She asks him whether or not she is dreaming when she thinks of the wonderful future they will have together.

The song was performed fourteenth on the night, following the Netherlands' Ben Cramer with "De oude muzikant" and preceding the United Kingdom's Cliff Richard with "Power to All Our Friends". At the close of voting, it had received 80 points, placing it 10th in a field of 17.

It was succeeded as Irish representative at the 1974 Contest by Tina Reynolds with "Cross Your Heart".
