"Un jardin sur la terre" (English translation: "A Garden on Earth") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed in French by Serge Lama.

The song was performed seventh on the night (following Spain's Karina with "En un mundo nuevo" and preceding Luxembourg's Monique Melsen with "Pomme, pomme, pomme"). At the close of voting, it had received 82 points, placing 10th in a field of 18.

The song deals with the chaos of daily life, with Lama expressing his desire for a place where he can find solitude amid everything else.

It was succeeded as French representative at the 1972 Contest by Betty Mars with "Comé-comédie".
