"So geht das jede Nacht" ("That's How It Is Every Night") was the second German entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1956 (the rules of that Contest allowed two entries per country, the only time that this was the case), performed in German by Freddy Quinn.

With music by Lothar Olias and lyrics by Peter Mösser, the song is an up-tempo number in the style of early rock and roll hits like "Rock Around The Clock" by Bill Haley & His Comets. In the song, Quinn explains to the object of his affections that he is not happy with the number of other men she goes out with over the course of the week. She sees Jimmy on Sunday, Jack on Monday, Johnny on Tuesday, Billy on Wednesday, Tommy on Thursday, Ben on Friday and "someone I don't even know" on Saturday.

Quinn declares that "I've loved you since you were a baby" and explains that he drives her to the office, sends her flowers and "takes you mother...to the zoo" and thus feels that he deserves better treatment than this, but despite his abilities at dancing the boogie and cha-cha-cha, she ignores his entreaties.

The song ends with Quinn's own confession that "But if you were thinking I've been sitting at home/I've been going out with someone else every day". Honours are thus even.

The song achieved moderate fame in Japan, where it was rerecorded in Japanese as "Kimi Wa Maiban No".
