"Celui qui reste et celui qui s'en va" (English translation: "The One Who Stays and the One Who Leaves") was the Monegasque entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1974, performed in French by French singer Romuald.

This was Romuald's third Eurovision entry, he had first entered the Contest in 1964 representing Monaco with "Où sont-elles passées" and the second time in 1969, then singing "Catherine" for Luxembourg.

The song is sung from the perspective of a man whose lover has just ended their relationship. Romuald sings that there is always one half of a relationship who "stays" - that is, the person who does not do the breaking up - and the other half who "goes" - by doing the breaking up. He compares the fates of both people, and sings that while he is not angry with his former lover, he wants her to realise the situation for what it is.

At the close of voting, it had received 14 points, placing 4th in a field of 17.
