"Lady, Lady" (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈleiði, ˈleiði]) was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1984, performed in Spanish by the quartet Bravo.

The song is a melancholy mid-tempo ballad, with lead singer Amaya Saizar telling the story of the titular "Lady", a woman who lost her loved one "and her youth a thousand years ago", yet every evening she waits patiently for his return. The "Lady", in "her grey sun hat, her starch dress", her "Jasmine perfume" and "blue eye make-up" wastes her life waiting and lives "in her crystal world".

The song was performed fourth on the night (following France's Annick Thoumazeau with "Autant d'amoureux que d'étoiles" and preceding Norway's Dollie de Luxe with "Lenge Leve Livet"). At the close of voting, it had received 106 points, placing 3rd in a field of 19.

The song was a great commercial success in Spain, reaching number one at the Los 40 Principales playlist.[1]

It was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 1985 Contest by Paloma San Basilio with "La fiesta terminó".
