Lass' ihn was the Swiss entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1998 in Birmingham performed by Gunvor Guggisberg. The song was an ultimatum to a man who had frequently cheated on her, telling him to leave her for good.

The song performed fifth on the night, following Spain and preceding Slovakia. At the close of the voting it had received Nul Points placing last. Due to this poor result, the country was relegated from the next Contest but would return two years later.

Lyrics

Cocktails serviert er jeden Abend
Verzaubert jede Frau spielt mit seinem Charme
Auch du ließt dich von ihm blenden
Warst schon nach paar Stunden in seinem Arm

Lass ihn endlich geh’n, oft ließ er dich steh’n
Es war nur ein Schein, lass ihn endlich sein
Wie oft betrog er dich, dachtest, er ändert sich
Doch da belügst du dich – sag, tut’s nicht weh?

Samstag, freust dich auf den Abend
Hast noch viel zu tun bis zum Feierabend
Aber die Gedanken schweifen ‘rüber
Denkst nur noch an ihn, schmeißt die Arbeit
Sogar die Stelle hin

Lass ihn endlich geh’n, oft ließ er dich steh’n
Es war nur ein Schein, lass ihn endlich sein
Wie oft betrog er dich, dachtest, er ändert sich
Doch da belügst du dich – sag, tut’s nicht weh?

Lass ihn endlich geh’n, oft ließ er dich steh’n
Es war nur ein Schein, lass ihn endlich sein
Wie oft betrog er dich, dachtest, er ändert sich
Doch da belügst du dich – sag, tut’s nicht weh?

Sag, tut’s nicht weh?
Es tut so weh

He serves cocktails every night
He wins all women over using his charm
You too let him bedazzle you
After a few hours, you were already in his arms

Let him go at last, he often walked out on you
It’s only appearance, let him be at last
How often he cheated you, you thought he would change
But you lied to yourself – say, doesn’t it hurt?

Saturday and you’re looking forward for the night to come
You still have loads to do before you finish work
But you keep thinking about it
You can’t get him out of your mind, you leave work
Even abandon your job

Let him go at last, he often walked out on you
It’s only appearance, let him be at last
How often he cheated you, you thought he would change
But you lied to yourself – say, doesn’t it hurt?

Let him go at last, he often walked out on you
It as only appearance, let him be at last
How often he cheated you, you thought he would change
But you lied to yourself – say, doesn’t it hurt?

Say, doesn’t it hurt?
It hurts so much
