Ring-dinge-ding, or Ring-dinge for short as it stands the Eurovision official website, ("Ring-Ding-A-Ding") was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, performed in Dutch by Thérèse Steinmetz.

The song is an up-tempo number, with Steinmetz singing about the sheer joy she feels on certain occasions - describing a series of outlanding activities she wishes to engage in. She explains that when she feels this way, it is a "Ring ding-a-ding-a-ding day".

The song was performed first on the night, preceding Luxembourg's Vicky with "L'amour est bleu". At the close of voting, it had received 2 points, placing 14th in a field of 17.The 2 points came from the United Kingdom and Ireland, the same countries who give same marks to the Netherlands in 1966. This was the first and one time when that happened. (The same countries give the same country same and final marks two years in a row.

It was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 1968 Contest by Ronnie Tober with "Morgen".
