"Nous les amoureux" ("We, the Lovers" or "Us Lovers") was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1961, performed in French for Luxembourg by French singer Jean-Claude Pascal.

The song was performed fourteenth on the night (following Denmark's Dario Campeotto with "Angelique" and preceding the United Kingdom's The Allisons with "Are You Sure?"). By the close of voting, it had received 31 points, placing it first in a field of 16 and thus helping Luxembourg to achieve the rare feat of moving from last to first in successive years.

Due to the contest overrunning in time, the reprise of this song was not shown in the UK. The UK's coverage ended shortly after the voting had finished and the winning song was declared.

The song was succeeded as Contest winner in 1962 by Isabelle Aubret singing "Un premier amour" for France.

It was succeeded as Luxembourgish representative at the 1962 Contest by Camillo Felgen with "Petit bonhomme".
