The song is up-tempo with a tropical-tinged musical arrangement, in which the point is made that there is nothing to be gained by worrying about being late or having to make deadlines. The band explains that "everything has a rhythm", people included, and that to try to work against this rhythm would be foolish.
During the previews week before the Contest, the music video for the song was shown, in which the girls lounged about the beach with a large mascot; the girls sang the song while walking along the beach, watching windsurfing (and shaking hands with windsurfer Stephan van den Berg), and in the final part of the song, riding an all-terrain vehicle (which the mascot drove). In some countries, however, only the footage from the Nationaal Songfestival was shown.
The song was performed seventh on the night, following Iceland's ICY with "Gleðibankinn" and preceding Turkey's Klips ve Onlar with "Halley". At the close of voting, it had received 40 points, placing 13th in a field of 20.
