"Heel De Wereld" (English translation: "The Whole World") was the Dutch entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1958, performed in Dutch by Corry Brokken. This was Brokken's third consecutive appearance on the Eurovision stage and it would be her last as a performer.

The song is in the "chanson" style, popular at the early Contest. Brokken sings that she wants to tell the whole world "my secret", because she is happy. She wonders if perhaps the world is too busy to be happy, but this does not diminish her joy. Peculiarly, she never explains why she is happy.

The song was performed second on the night (following Italy's Domenico Modugno with "Nel blu dipinto di blu (Volare)" and preceding France's André Claveau with "Dors, Mon Amour"). At the close of voting, it had received 1 point, placing 9th (equal last) in a field of 10.

It was succeeded as Dutch representative at the 1959 Contest by Teddy Scholten with "Een Beetje".
