"Niemand heeft nog tijd" ("No one has time anymore") was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1997, performed in Dutch by Mrs. Einstein.

The song is an up-tempo number, with the singers bemoaning the fact that the modern world has made life convenient, but has also meant that people no longer have the time to focus on each other's needs. They sing about the need to take time to notice the world and those around.

The song was performed eighth on the night, following Switzerland's Barbara Berta with "Dentro di me" and preceding Italy's Jalisse with "Fiumi di parole". At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 22nd in a field of 25.

It was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 1998 Contest by Edsilia with "Hemel en aarde".
