Comme ci, comme ça ("Like This, Like That") was the Cypriot entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki performed by Evridiki Theokleous in her third appearance in the contest. This makes it the first time a non-Francophone country uses French in their lyrics.

"Comme ci, comme ça" is a moderately up-tempo number, with influences both from rock and techno. Evridiki addresses herself to her lover, telling him that she finds it difficult to live with him. She complains that every Monday he finishes work too late to enjoy her, falling asleep "just as my heart wakes up". He also promises that they will see a movie every Tuesday, but is unable to keep this promise. Following these criticisms, she explains that the unexciting routine of their relationship is too much for her and that she is no longer in love with him. As the chorus continues, it becomes apparent that she intends to leave him.

It was performed third in the semifinal following Israe and preceding Belarus. At the close of voting, it finished in 15th place with 65 points, thus missing out on the final.

Lyrics

Tous les lundis, tu finis
Le travail trop tard et puis
La télé et sommeil
Quand mon cœur se réveille
Et tous les mardis, tu me dis
Le matin – et tu l’oublies
“On ira au ciné”
Et le soir – “désolé”

Comme ci comme ça, la vie passe
Et les bons moments nous dépassent
Comme ci comme ça, l’amour casse
Routine et paresse nous menacent

Comme ci comme ça, je n’en peux plus
Je suis déçue, tu m’as perdue
Je reste pas là, comme ci comme ça
La fin voilà, comme ci comme ça

Même les samedis à minuit
Tu me dis déjà bonne nuit
Tu t’endors quand je sors
En te chantant très fort:

Comme ci comme ça, la vie passe
Et les bons moments nous dépassent
Comme ci comme ça, l’amour casse
Routine et paresse nous menacent

Comme ci comme ça, je n’en peux plus
Je suis déçue, tu m’as perdue
Je reste pas là, comme ci comme ça
La fin voilà, comme ci comme ça

Comme ci comme ça, la vie passe
Et les bons moments nous dépassent
Comme ci comme ça, l’amour casse
Routine et paresse nous menacent

Comme ci comme ça, je n’en peux plus
Je suis déçue, tu m’as perdue
Je reste pas là, comme ci comme ça
La fin voilà, comme ci comme ça

Je reste pas là, comme ci comme ça
La fin voilà, comme ci comme ça
Je reste pas là, comme ci comme ça
La fin voilà

Every Monday, you finish
Work too late and then
TV and sleep
Just as my heart wakes up
And every Tuesday, you tell me
In the morning – and you forget it
“We’ll go to the movies”
And in the evening – “sorry”

Like this, like that, life passes by
And the good times pass us over
Like this, like that, love breaks
Routine and laziness threaten us

Like this, like that, I can’t take it anymore
I’m disappointed, you’ve lost me
I’m not sticking around, like this, like that
That’s the end, like this, like that

Even on Saturday at midnight
You already tell me good night
You fall asleep just as I go out
Singing to yourself very loudly:

Like this, like that, life passes by
And the good times pass us over
Like this, like that, love breaks
Routine and laziness threaten us

Like this, like that, I can’t take it anymore
I’m disappointed, you’ve lost me
I’m not sticking around, like this, like that
That’s the end, like this, like that

Like this, like that, life passes by
And the good times pass us over
Like this, like that, love breaks
Routine and laziness threaten us

Like this, like that, I can’t take it anymore
I’m disappointed, you’ve lost me
I’m not sticking around, like this, like that
That’s the end, like this, like that

I’m not sticking around, like this, like that
Here’s the end, like this, like that
I’m not sticking around, like this, like that
That’s the end
