"Say Wonderful Things" is a popular song with music by Philip Green and lyrics by Norman Newell, published in 1963. It was the United Kingdom's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1963, held in London. The singer was Ronnie Carroll, who also represented the UK the year before. The song finished fourth behind Denmark, Switzerland and Italy, eventually reaching #6 in the UK Singles Chart.

The most popular version of the song in the United States was recorded by Patti Page, as the title song of her first album for Columbia Records.
