The song is in the chanson style popular in the early years of the Contest, with Pills singing about the fleeting fame of his friend Pierrot, whom he asks to join him and "sing about your loves and your grief" after his fame is over.

The song was performed fourth on the night (following Italy's Domenico Modugno with "Piove (Ciao, ciao bambina)" and preceding the Netherlands' Teddy Scholten with "Een beetje"). At the close of voting, it had received 1 point, placing it 11th in a field of 11.

It was succeeded as Monaco's entry at the 1960 Contest by François Deguelt with "Ce soir-là".

Pills' daughter, Jacqueline Boyer, won the 1960 Contest, representing France with "Tom Pillibi".
