◄ "Für zwei Groschen Musik" (1958)   
"Bonne nuit ma chérie" (1960) ►

The song was performed sixth on the night (following the Netherlands' Teddy Scholten with "Een beetje" and preceding Sweden's Brita Borg with "Augustin"). At the close of voting, it had received 5 points, placing 8th in a field of 11.

The song is a moderately up-tempo number, with the singers suggesting to a boy that they all go dancing "without a break till tomorrow morning".

It was succeeded as German representative at the 1960 Contest by Wyn Hoop with "Bonne nuit ma chérie".
