The song was written by Amsterdam lyricist and composer Pieter Goemans. It is an up-tempo number, with the singer asking a potential lover about his star sign - specifically, whether it is Aquarius like her own. She appears to receive an answer in the affirmative, as she goes on to explain that this similarity explains her attraction to him and then to liken him to the qualities embodied in the sign itself. Hearts of Soul also recorded their entry in English as "Waterman", and German as "Liebelei".
In 1977 the Maessen sisters returned to Eurovision, but then representing Belgium with the song "A Million in One, Two, Three", and as part of the quartet Dream Express. Stella Maessen went on to represent Belgium as a solo artist again in 1982 with "Si tu aimes ma musique".
