"Vuggevise" ("Lullaby") was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1962, performed in Danish by Ellen Winther.

The song was performed fifth on the night, following Austria's Eleonore Schwarz with "Nur in der wiener Luft" and preceding Sweden's Inger Berggren with "Sol och vår". At the close of voting, it had received 2 points, placing 10th in a field of 16.

As the title suggests, the song is a lullaby, sung from the perspective of a mother to her child. Winther suggests that the mother will spend the time that the child is asleep "deleting sorrows from the long list".

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1963 Contest by Grethe and Jørgen Ingmann with "Dansevise".
