"Småting" ("Little things") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1972, performed in Norwegian by Grethe & Benny.

The song is a ballad, with the duo comparing the great successes of human life (inheriting a castle, landing on the moon) with the "little things", such as watching a sunset, which they sing are superior experiences.

The song was performed sixth on the night, following the United Kingdom's The New Seekers with "Beg, Steal or Borrow" and preceding Portugal's Carlos Mendes with "A festa da vida". At the close of voting, it had received 73 points, placing 14th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1973 contest by Bendik Singers with "It's Just A Game".
