"My Little World" was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1976, performed in English (the first time that Austria had performed entirely in English) by Waterloo & Robinson.

The song was performed fourteenth on the night, following Italy's Al Bano & Romina Power with "We'll Live It All Again" and preceding Portugal's Carlos do Carmo with "Uma flor de verde pinho". At the close of voting, it had received 80 points, placing 5th in a field of 18. They also recorded a German version Meine kleine Welt.

The song is about the happiness the singer gets from loving his girlfriend. He sings that "I don't need no new sensations/All I want's the simple life".

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative in the 1977 contest by Schmetterlinge, singing "Boom Boom Boomerang".
