"Dis oui" ("Say Yes") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1998, written by Philippe Swan and performed in French by Mélanie Cohl. The song was composed Belgian singer-songwriter Philippe Swan.
"Dis oui" was performed twentieth on the night (following Sweden's Jill Johnson with "Kärleken är" and preceding Finland's Edea with "Aava"). At the close of voting, it had received 122 points, placing 6th in a field of 25, at the time Belgium's best result in the Contest since Sandra Kim's win with "J'aime la vie" in 1986.
The song is sung from the perspective of a woman pleading with a man to give up his previous relationship and love her instead. She paints various images of the bliss that they can have as a result.
An English version is rumoured to have been recorded but never released.
