"Mono Yia Mas" (Greek script: "Μόνο Για Μας", English translation: "Only For Us") was the Cypriot entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1996, performed in Greek by Constantinos.

The song was performed fifth on the night, following Portugal's Lúcia Moniz with "O meu coração não tem cor" and preceding Malta's Miriam Christine with "In A Woman's Heart". At the close of voting, it had received 72 points, placing 9th in a field of 23.

The song features Christoforou telling his lover that the night exists "only for us".

Christoforou would later appear (at the 2002 Contest) as part of One with "Gimme" and at the 2005 Contest performing Ela Ela (Come Baby) solo. Thus, this performance was the first "leg" in the rare sequence of a contestant making a solo appearance, an appearance as a member of a group and a further solo appearance.

It was succeeded as Cypriot representative at the 1997 Contest by Hara & Andreas Konstantinou with "Mana Mou".
