"Työlki ellää" (Karelian dialectical Finnish for "One can work for a living, too" (standard Finnish: Työlläkin elää)) is a song composed by Timo Kiiskinen and performed by Kuunkuiskaajat, and was the Finnish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2010, sung in Finnish. The song was the winner of the Euroviisut 2010 contest, organised by Yle, and used to select the Finnish entry for the Contest, which was held in Oslo, Norway in May 2010.[1][2]

In the contest, the song entered in the first semifinal on 25 May. It came eleventh, missing the cut for the final by three points, ranking sixth in the televoting but only fifteenth in the jury votes.

The song featured on the group's album Kuunkuiskaajat.
