|Eurovision Song Contest 1960 entry|
|◄ "Mon ami Pierrot" (1959)|
|"Allons, allons les enfants" (1961) ►|
The song is in the chanson style popular in the early years of the Contest. Deguelt describes the first night he spent with his lover and explains to her that he realised then that "Life would never have attraction for me/Far from you". It appears from the lyrics, however, that his lover has left him since then, which has resulted in his perpetual waiting for her return in order to relive "that night".
The song was performed eighth on the night, following Austria's Harry Winter with "Du hast mich so fasziniert" and preceding Switzerland's Anita Traversi with "Cielo e terra". At the close of voting, it had received 15 points, placing 3rd in a field of 13.
