Boom Boom was the Danish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1978 in Paris performed by the group Mabel. It was Denmark's return to the contest after a 12-year absence.

The song is sung as a dialogue among friends, with one explaining that he is suffering from an illness. The others suggest what it could be, but he reports that a trip to the doctor resulted in a diagnosis of being in love - with the rhythm of the heart being the title of the song.

It was performed 16th on the night following Greece and preceding Luxembourg. At the close of voting, it finished in 16th place with 13 points.

Lyrics

Hvad er det, der er galt med mig?
Jeg føler mig lidt sløj
Jeg tror, det er problemer
Eller alt for megen røg
Nej du, jeg ryger ikke og drikker ikke spor
Så er det nok din kondition
Der' værre end du tror

Nej, jeg gik op til lægen
Og ved du, hva' han sa'?
At du sku' holde op med
Livets goder fra i dag
Jeg lagde mig på briksen, og han undersøgte mig
Hva' skete der? Hva' sagde han?
Hva' er der galt med dig?

Og det si'r "boom boom"
Og "boom boom" af lyst
Det føles som en torden her i mit bryst
Ja, det si'r "boom boom"
Og banker som besat
Det hamrer og det banker dag og nat

Nu ka' jeg godt forstå
Hvorfor du går og er så bleg
Det glæder mig, men sig mig:
Hvad tror du, der er på vej?
Det er den store kærlighed
Jeg ve' det fra mig selv
Så du har haft det li'som jeg
Fortæl, fortæl, fortæl

Det er helt naturligt
Hjertet hamrer løs
Når man er forelsket i en pi'
Hvis man mærker kæmpeslag
Så bli'r man let nervøs
Det er kærlighed, der banker på indeni

Og det si'r "boom boom"
Og "boom boom" af lyst
Det føles som en torden her i mit bryst
Ja, det si'r "boom boom"
Og banker som besat
Det hamrer og det banker dag og nat

Og det si'r "boom boom"
Og "boom boom" af lyst
Det føles som en torden her i mit bryst
Ja, det si'r "boom boom"
Og banker som besat
Det hamrer og det banker dag og nat

Ja, det si'r "boom boom"
Og banker som besat
Det hamrer og det banker dag og nat

What is it that's wrong with me?
I feel a bit unwell
I think it's problems
Or far too much smoke
No, I don't smoke and don't drink at all
Then it's probably your fitness
That's worse than you think

No, I went to see the doctor
And do you know what he said?
That you should stop
The good things in life, from today?
I laid down on the couch, and he examined me
What happened? What did he say?
What's wrong with you?

It's only natural
The heart's pounding away
When you're in love with a girl
If you feel giant beats
You easily get nervous
It's love, that's knocking on the inside

And it goes "boom boom"
And "boom boom" of desire
It feels like thunder here in my breast
Yes, it goes "boom boom"
And beats like possessed
It's pounding and beating day and night

Now I understand
Why you are so pale
I'm pleased, but tell me:
What do you think is on its way?
It's the great love
I know it from myself
So you've felt the way I do
Tell me, tell me, tell me

It's only natural
The heart's pounding away
When you're in love with a girl
If you feel giant beats
You easily get nervous
It's love, that's knocking on the inside

And it goes "boom boom"
And "boom boom" of desire
It feels like thunder here in my breast
Yes, it goes "boom boom"
And beats like possessed
It's pounding and beating day and night

And it goes "boom boom"
And "boom boom" of desire
It feels like thunder here in my breast
Yes, it goes "boom boom"
And beats like possessed
It's pounding and beating day and night

Yes, it goes "boom boom"
And beats like possessed
It's pounding and beating day and night
