Dönme Dolap (Ferris wheel in English) was the Turkish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1981, performed in Turkish by Modern Folk Trio and Ayşegül Aldinç.

The song was performed second on the night (following Austria's Marty Brem with "Wenn du da bist" and preceding Germany's Lena Valaitis with "Johnny Blue"). At the close of voting, it had received 9 points, placing 18th (equaling Portugal) in a field of 20.

The song is a mixture between the traditional Turkish music and the pop music. The lyrics made a comparison between life and a carousel with ups and downs, the better is the true friendship, because is eternal.

It was succeeded as Turkish representative at the 1982 Contest by Neco with "Hani?".
