"Maman, Maman" (English translation: "Mum, Mum") was the Monegasque entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1969, performed in French by French singer Jean Jacques, at the time just 12 years old.

The song is a ballad, in which the singer tells his mother about a "marvellous dream" he had in which he has grown up and gone to war. Over the course of the song, however, he realises that he prefers his younger life - and ultimately has a "bad dream" in which his envisions his mother in her old age. He concludes by singing that he wishes to remain a child. Jean Jacques recorded the song in four languages; French, German (as "Mama"), Spanish ("Mamá") and Italian ("Maman").

At the close of voting, it had received 11 points, placing 6th in a field of 16.
