"Lisa Mona Lisa" was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, performed in German by Wilfried.

The song was performed twelfth on the night, following Germany's Maxi & Chris Garden with "Lied für einen Freund" and preceding Denmark's Kirsten & Søren with "Ka' du se hva' jeg sa'?". At the close of voting, it had received the dreaded nul points, placing it last out of a field of 21.

The song is a ballad in which the singer likens the object of his affection to the Mona Lisa, in that she is very mysterious but nonetheless entrancing. The song was recorded in German, French and English. Due to the song's poor performance at the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, the English version was not released.

It was succeeded as Austrian representative at the 1989 Contest by Thomas Forstner singing "Nur ein Lied".
