"Marcel" was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1963, performed in German by Heidi Brühl.

The song was performed third on the night, following the Netherlands' Annie Palmen with "Een speeldoos" and preceding Austria's Carmela Corren with "Vielleicht geschieht ein Wunder". At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 9th in a field of 16.

The song is sung from the perspective of a young woman telling her lover (the titular Marcel) that he is moving too quickly for her. She tells him that "only a gentleman has a chance with me" and that he needs to respect that. Brühl also recorded the song in English.

It was succeeded as German representative at the 1964 Contest by Nora Nova with "Man gewöhnt sich so schnell an das Schöne".
