Lale Andersen Einmal Sehen Wir Uns Wieder
"Einmal sehen wir uns wieder" (English translation: "One Day We'll See Each Other Once Again") was the German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1961, performed in German with one verse in French by Lale Andersen (23 March 1905 – 29 August 1972). When entering the Contest in 1961 Andersen was arguably that year's most established and well-known artist, not only in Europe but worldwide; in 1939 she had recorded the original version of wartime evergreen "Lili Marleen".
At the close of voting, it had received 3 points, placing 13th in a field of 16.
The song is a ballad, with Andersen farewelling her lover and promising that they will see each other again "maybe...next year".
