"Petit bonhomme" is a ballad, with Felgen singing to a boy he identifies as his son near the end of the lyric. He tells him that there are many more experiences for his generation than the older one and that this is a good thing. Felgen also recorded his entry in a German language version, as "Du kleiner Mann" ("You, Little Man").
The song was performed fourteenth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Ronnie Carroll with "Ring-A-Ding Girl" and preceding Italy's Claudio Villa with "Addio, addio"). At the close of voting, it had received 11 points, placing 3rd in a field of 16.
