The song "Mrs. Caroline Robinson" was the Austrian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 1978, performed in German by Springtime.

The song was performed nineteenth on the night (following Israel's Izhar Cohen and Alphabeta with "A-Ba-Ni-Bi" and preceding Sweden's Björn Skifs with "Det blir alltid värre framåt natten"). At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 15th in a field of 18.

The song is about the titular Caroline Robinson, the "top-witch of this town", who has considerable sex appeal now that she doesn't use her broomstick.

The song was succeeded as Austrian representative at the 1979 Contest by Christina Simon singing "Heute in Jerusalem".
