The song was performed sixteenth on the night, following Turkey's Beş Yıl Önce, On Yıl Sonra with "Halay" and preceding Switzerland's Rainy Day with "Welche Farbe hat der Sonnenschein?". At the close of voting, it had received 46 points, placing 9th in a field of 19.
The song is one of the biggest hits of Kirka. Though Kirka's career as a singer began in 1967, the LP-album called "Hengaillaan" was his first album which sold gold in Finland. The song is still very popular also in Finnish karaokebars and in "finnhits"-discos.
The song is sung as a suggestion to a fellow traveller that, instead of finding accommodation for the night, the pair "hang around the [train] station" until the morning - when their train leaves at 5:30am. Ultimately, however, they miss that train as well. Kirka also recorded the song in English, then under the title "C'mon Let's Boogie".
