"Tout de moi" (English translation: "All of Me") was the Monegasque entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, performed in French by French singer Lise Darly.

The song is a dramatic ballad, with Darly offering her lover "all of me" and telling him that "everything already/Reminds me that I'm nothing without you". Darly also recorded an English-language version of the song, entitled "All of Me".

As Monaco had not qualified from the semi-final at the 2004 Contest, the song was performed in the semi-final. Here, it was performed sixth, following Latvia's Walters & Kazha with "The War Is Not Over" and preceding Israel's Shiri Maimon with "Hasheket Shenish'ar". At the close of voting, it had received 22 points, placing 24th in a field of 25 and thus requiring Monaco to qualify from the semi-final at their next Contest appearance.

It was succeeded as Monegasque representative at the 2006 Contest by Séverine Ferrer with "La Coco-Dance".
