On the night of the final, the song performed in the tenth position (following Spain's Cadillac singing "Valentino" and preceding Israel's Moti Giladi & Sarai Tzuriel with "Yavo Yom"), and at the close of the voting had received 140 points, placing 2nd in a field of 20.
In the song, Simmons sings about how she desires "love written in capital letters" from a man, and laments as to why this is not happening for her. She decries one-night stands and men treating women as if they are only "tricks coming from the disco," which caused a minor stir in French-speaking nations as Simmons uses mildly vulgar contemporary slang to describe such acts. The "pas pour moi" referenced in the song is Simmons telling the listener that she feels young people living a hedonistic existence with many sexual partners is "not for her." Throughout most of the song, Simmons plays the underlying melody herself on the piano.
Simons also recorded the song in Dutch, as "Nee voor mij" ("No for me"), released as a single in the Netherlands.
