Dansevise was the Danish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1963 in Londong performed by married couple Grethe and Jørgen Ingmann. The song is a moderately up-tempo tune in which the singer hymns the praises of dancing, specifically with her "beloved friend". The performance made use of swirling images on the TV screen to add to the dream-like feel of the melody.

It was performed 8th following Finland and preceding Yugoslavia. At the close of voting, it won with 42 points giving Denmark its first victory. Grethe and Jørgen became the first male-female duo to win the contest, only one of two along with Ell and Nikki of Azerbaijan (who won in 2011) to do so.

Lyrics

Et solstrejf i en vandpyt
Et lille kindkys af en vind
Og sivet, der nynner
At livet begynder
Sit spind i dit sind

Et sølvfløjt fra en trætop
En svag tagfat-lyd af en kat
En rislen i bækken
En hvislen i hækken
Der si'r, at det ikke mer' er nat

Dugvåd ligger engen
Jomfru Daggry går til ro
Dagen står Puk-kåd ud af sengen
Og går over solens bro

Og os to?
Hvad med os to?
Ja, hvad med os to, dig og mig?
Jeg danser og danser og standser
Og sanser kun dig
Hvorfor løb du dog din vej?

Kom igen, kom igen
Kom igen, du, min elskede ven
Kom igen, kom igen
Hvor du ønsker det, danser vi hen

Kom, lad os danse
Alt kan der ske
Kom, lad os danse
Lad os danse, lad os le

Et sølvfløjt fra en trætop
En svag tagfat-lyd af en kat
En rislen i bækken
En hvislen i hækken
Der si'r, at det ikke mer' er nat

Dugvåd ligger engen
Jomfru Daggry går til ro
Dagen står Puk-kåd ud af sengen
Og går over solens bro

Og os to?
Hvad med os to?
Ja, hvad med os to, dig og mig?
Jeg danser og danser og standser
Og sanser kun dig
Hvorfor løb du dog din vej?
Kom igen, kom igen

Elskede ven[1]

A ray of sunshine in a puddle
A little kiss on the cheek from a wind
And the rush, humming
That life's beginning
Its web in your mind

A whistle of silver from a treetop
A faint sound of a cat grabbing
A ripple in the stream
A whisper in the hedge
That says, that it isn't night anymore

The meadow is wet with dew
Lady Dawn goes to bed
Day gets up playfully
And crossing the bridge of the sun

And the two of us?
What about the two of us?
Yes, what about the two of us, you and me?
I'm dancing and dancing and stopping
And sensing only you
Why ever did you run away?

Come back, come back
Come back, you my beloved friend
Come back, come back
Wherever you wish, are we dancing to

Come, let us dance
Everything can happen
Come, let us dance
Let us dance, let us laugh

A whistle of silver from a treetop
A faint sound of a cat grabbing
A ripple in the stream
A whisper in the hedge
That says, that it isn't night anymore

The meadow is wet with dew
Lady Dawn goes to bed
Day gets up playfully
And crossing the bridge of the sun

And the two of us?
What about the two of us?
Yes, what about the two of us, you and me?
I'm dancing and dancing and stopping
And sensing only you
Why ever did you run away?
Come back, come back

Beloved friend
