The song is a call from Deréal to the children of the world to get out of the towns and into the wider world to celebrate the joys of Spring. She sings that this is the only way for them to truly live.
The song was performed second on the night (following Spain's Conchita Bautista with Estando Contigo and preceding Austria's Jimmy Makulis with Sehnsucht). At the close of voting, it had received 6 points, placing 10th in a field of 16.
The line "Allons enfants de la patrie" is the first line of La Marseillaise, the national anthem of France (of which Monaco is an enclave). Whether the two have anything to do with one another is unknown.
