Dancing Lasha Tumbai was the Ukrainian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 in Helsinki performed by Verka Serduchka.

The lyrics contains a few words in Russian but mainly it consists of the German, English, and Ukrainian languages. The words 'Lasha tumbai' have no real meaning, despite Verka claiming that it was Mongolian for 'whipped cream'. Some people instead say that it sounds like "Russia goodbye".

Because Ukraine finished in the top 10 in 2006, the song was automatically qualified for the final. On the night, it was performed 18th following Serbia and preceding the United Kingdom. At the close of voting, it finished in 2nd place with 235 points.

It was subsequently covered by Eleni Foureira in the 'Switch Song' interval act in the grand final of the 2019 contest.
