Australian singer Tina Arena released her version of the song as a single from her 1997 album In Deep. The song became a huge hit in Belgium (Wallonia) where it topped the chart for three weeks and remained in the top 40 for 20 weeks, and in France, where it charted in the top ten for 13 weeks and peaked at number 4 for 2 weeks. The single was certified gold by the SNEP. The single version was different from the album version in that it featured only two of the three original verses, omitting the last one.

Ehud Manor translated the song into Hebrew, and it was sung by Tunisian-Israeli singer Corinne Allal on her 1990 album Sfat Immi ("my mother's tongue").
