"Laiskotellen" ("Idling") was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1964, performed in Finnish by Lasse Mårtenson.

The song was performed fifth on the night, following Denmark's Bjørn Tidmand with "Sangen om dig" and preceding Austria's Udo Jürgens with "Warum nur warum?". At the close of voting, it had received 9 points, placing 7th in a field of 16.

The song is in praise of doing absolutely nothing on a Sunday, even in the knowledge that Monday is just around the corner.

It was succeeded as Finnish representative at the 1965 Contest by Viktor Klimenko with "Aurinko laskee länteen".
