"Pridi, dala ti bom cvet" (English: Come closer, I'll give you a flower) is a song that was Yugoslavia's entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1970. The song marked the third of four occasions in which Yugoslavia's entry was performed in Slovene. The song was sung by 18-year-old Slovenian music newcomer Eva Sršen.

Sršen won the right to compete for Yugoslavia after winning Pesma Evrovizije 1970, held on February 14, 1970, where she competed against 14 other performers. Sršen performed fifth at the final and at the end of voting, "Pridi, dala ti bom cvet" received 26 points from the nine member jury, placing her first. This allowed the Socialist Republic of Slovenia to represent the whole of Yugoslavia in Amsterdam.

The song uses the metaphor of "flowers," as the singer describes that she is the flower "that nobody can reach but you," the "you" implying her secret love. At the end of judging that evening, "Pridi, dala ti bom cvet" took the eleventh-place slot with four points, all of them awarded to Yugoslavia by the United Kingdom.

RTÉ commentator Valerie McGovern deemed the performance "simple and ungimmicky," ostensibly compared to the Italian entry performed just previous, which McGovern simply said of it, "It was certainly a happy approach any way he gave it.
