"La-La (Means I Love You)" is a 1968 song originally performed by The Delfonics. It was written by Thom Bell and William Hart and produced by Bell and Stan Watson.

"La-La" was a number four US Billboard pop, number two R&B in 1968 and number 19 UK pop single in 1971. The song is one of the Delfonics' most enduring recordings and perhaps their best loved, seeing a number of cover versions as well. The song was featured in Spike Lee's 1994 film, Crooklyn. In 2004, rapper Ghostface Killah also sampled "La-La" for his song "Holla" from his album The Pretty Toney Album. Nicolas Cage sang this song to Téa Leoni in the 2000 film, The Family Man.
