Les amants de minuit was the second Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest, and the 1956 edition also. The song was performed in the chanson-mode style used by many singers in that particular year, by singer Michèle Arnaud.

It was performed thirteenth following France's second entry and Italy's second. Its final placing remains unknown.

Lyrics

Les amants de minuit par hasard se rencontrent
Par hasard se rencontrent
Et quant à ce qui suit - bonheur ou malencontreux
Seule le sait la nuit

À l'angle de deux rues, aux tables d'un café
Au long d'une avenue, deux ombres sont venues
Et puis, les jeux sont faits

Pas de mots inutiles, pas de baisers perdus
Pas de baisers perdus
Pas d'aveux difficiles ni de cœurs morfondus
Ni décevant idylle

À l'aube sans retour
Les amants désapprennent leurs noms et leurs amours
Elles valent les miennes usés par tant de jours

Les amants de minuit par hasard se rencontrent
Par hasard se rencontrent
Et quant à ce qui suit - bonheur ou malencontreux
Seule le sait la nuit

Et si leurs cœurs se donnent un peu plus qu'une nuit
Il n'y aura personne, personne entre elle et lui
Pour leur crier maldonne

Les amants de minuit par hasard se rencontrent
Par hasard se rencontrent[1]

Midnight lovers, by chance meet together
By chance meet together
And, about what will follow, happiness or unfortunate
Only knows the night

At the corner of two streets, at café tables
On the avenue, two shadows had come
And then, the die is cast

No pointless words, no lost kisses
No lost kisses
No difficult confessions, nor dejected heart
Nor disappointing romance

At dawn no return
Lovers unlearn their names and their loves
It is quite the equal of mine, worn out by so many days.

Midnight lovers, by chance meet together
By chance meet together
And, about what will followed, happiness or unfortunate
Only knows the night

And if their heart gave themselves a little bit more than one night
There will be nobody, nobody between her and him
To shout them misdeal

Midnight lovers, by chance meet together
By chance meet together
