Boogaloo was the Swedish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1987 in Brussels performed by Lotta Engberg. The song was originally called "Fyra Bugg och en Coca-Cola" for the 1987 Melodifestivalen, but because of international advertising rules, it was re-titled for the appearance at the contest.

It is a very up-tempo song with island rhythms, talking about how dancing and listening to music can cheer one up when they're feeling down.

At the contest, it was performed 6th following host country Belgium and preceding Italy. At the close of voting, it finished 12th with 50 points including a top score of 12 from Israel.

Lyrics

Du som tycker din dag är grå, jorden snurrar sitt varv ändå
Bryr sig inte så mycket om vem som gick och kom
Snart så skiner en sol igen på en blommande äng
Varma vindar från längese'n, spelar upp en refräng

Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Spela freestyle med fräck musik
Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Doft av sommar och romantik
Vill du leva och vill du dansa?
Våga skratta och våga chansa?
Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Spela freestyle med fräck musik

La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...
La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...

Du som har gått och väntat så
All din längtan den ska du nå
Blicka framåt och du ska se, snart så händer det
Ner till kusten med tåg och bil reser hela vårt gäng
Varma vindar i sommaren, spelar upp vår refräng

Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Spela freestyle med fräck musik
Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Doft av sommar och romantik
Vill du leva och vill du dansa?
Våga skratta och våga chansa?
Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Spela freestyle med fräck musik

En melodi söker sig fram
Ger oss värme och en ny harmoni
Det känns okej, säg inte nej
Våga dansa, våga sjunga som vi

Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Spela freestyle med fräck musik
Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Doft av sommar och romantik
Vill du leva och vill du dansa?
Våga skratta och våga chansa?
Boogaloo, dansa rock'n rolla
Spela freestyle med fräck musik

La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...
La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...

If you feel that your day is grey, the earth will still turn
It doesn't care that much of, who left and who came
Soon the sun will shine again, over a bed of flowers
Warm winds from the past, will play you an refrain

Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
Play cool music on your walkman
Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
A smell of summer and romance
Do you want to live and do you want to dance?
Dare to laugh and dare to take a chance?
Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
Play cool music on your walkman

La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...
La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...

You that has been longing so much
You will reach, all you ever longed for
Look forward and you will see, it will all soon happen
Down to the sea by train and car all of our gang is travelling
Warms summer winds will play our refrain

Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
Play cool music on your walkman
Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
A smell of summer and romance
Do you want to live and do you want to dance?
Dare to laugh and dare to take a chance?
Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
Play cool music on your walkman

A song searching its way through
Gives us the warmth and a new harmony
It feels ok, don't say no
Dare to dance and sing like us

Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
Play cool music on your walkman
Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
A smell of summer and romance
Do you want to live and do you want to dance?
Dare to laugh and dare to take a chance?
Boogaloo, dancing rock 'n' roll
Play cool music on your walkman

La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...
La lalala lala lalala...
La lalala lala lala...
