Come Back to Stay was the Irish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1966, performed by Dickie Rock.

This entry was the first ever Eurovision song to be conducted by Noel Kelehan. 28 more would follow, the last one being "Is Always Over Now" by Dawn Martin in 1998. Because in 1965 the RTÉ had not sent its own conductor to the Eurovision Song Contest, Kelehan was to become both the first and the last ever Irish conductor in the Eurovision Song Contest.

It was performed seventeenth on the night, following the Netherlands and preceding the United Kingdom. At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 4th in a field of 18.

Lyrics

My love, I need your touch
I need your love so very much
Since you went away
I cried for you each night and day

The day you went away
I said I didn’t mind
Now I know that you have left
A broken heart behind

Please, come back to stay
And promise me you’ll never stray
I promise I’ll be true
And that I’ll never make you blue

For no one else can take your place
Your smile, your lips, your eyes, your face
Please, darling, oh please
Come back to me to stay

Please, come back to stay
And promise me you’ll never stray
I promise that I’ll be true
And that I’ll never make you blue

For no one else can take your place
Your smile, your lips, your eyes, your face
Please, darling, oh please
Come back to me to stay

Oh darling, please come back to stay
