"Só sei ser feliz assim" ("Only can be happy this way") was the Portuguese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2001, performed in Portuguese by MTM (standing for "Marco, Tony and Music"), made up of Portuguese singers Marco Quelhas, who also wrote the song, and Tony Jackson. The two men both wore suits, Marco's in black and Tony's in white.

The song is influenced by urban music, with the duo telling their lovers that it is only with them that they can truly be happy.

The song was performed eleventh on the night, following Croatia's Vanna with "Strings of My Heart" and preceding Ireland's Gary O'Shaughnessy with "Without Your Love". At the close of voting, it had received 18 points, placing 17th in a field of 23.

Due to the poor result, Portugal was not invited to take part in the 2002 Contest. As a country broadcasting but not participating in the Contest (a "passive participant") it was allowed to return to the fold the following year. Thus, the song was succeeded as Portuguese representative at the 2003 contest by Rita Guerra with "Deixa-me sonhar".
