"Jeg rev et blad ud af min dagbog" (I tore a leaf out of my diary) was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1958, performed in Danish by Raquel Rastenni.

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Sweden's Alice Babs with "Lilla stjärna" and preceding Belgium's Fud Leclerc with "Ma petite chatte". At the close of voting, it had received 3 points, placing 8th in a field of 10.

The song is sung from the perspective of a woman apologising to a friend or lover (the lyrics are unclear as to exactly which) for her actions, and suggesting that the other party needs to do likewise. She sings that she regrets the words she used, so she "tore a page out of my diary".

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1959 contest by Birthe Wilke with "Uh, jeg ville ønske jeg var dig".
