"Swiss Lady" was the Swiss entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, performed in German by Pepe Lienhard Band. It remains the only Swiss entry to have reached no. 1 on the official Swiss Single Chart.

The song is about a man from the mountains who plays the alphorn and considers this instrument his "Swiss Lady". The song was performed twelfth on the night, following Israel's Ilanit with "Ahava Hi Shir Lishnayim" and preceding Sweden's Forbes with "Beatles". At the close of voting, it had received 71 points, placing 6th in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Swiss representative at the 1978 Contest by Carole Vinci with "Vivre".
