"Ik heb zorgen" ("I have worries") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, performed in Dutch by Louis Neefs.

The song deals with Neefs' worries, which are caused by a love interest. The lyrics are often the subject of humour, as the chorus features the Dutch lines "Oh oh, ik heb zorgen, oh oh, ik heb zorgen/Oh oh, ik heb zorgen en dat verveelt me zo", with the phrase "en dat verveelt me zo" being variously translated as "And that worries me a lot" and "And that bothers me a lot", both of which sound odd in English. Des Mangan in fact translates the lyric as "And that bores me a lot", which further adds to the surreal effect. Neefs also recorded the song in English (as "I Got Troubles") and German ("Ich habe Sorgen").

At the close of voting, it had received 8 points, placing 7th in a field of 17.
