The song is an up-tempo number in which the banjo plays an important part; Micky sings about how he one day goes for a walk and how he finds a girl playing the instrument and singing on his doorstep. She sees that he has something on his mind and promises to "teach him to play and sing" to help him forget his sorrows. Micky also recorded the song in French and German, as "Apprends-moi à chanter" (translated: "Teach Me to Sing") and "Ich singe la, la, la" ("I Sing La, La, La") respectively.
The song was performed 14th on the night, following Sweden's Forbes with "Beatles and preceding Italy's Mia Martini "Libera". At the close of voting, it had received 52 points, placing 9th in a field of 18.
