I knew this song as sung by French singer Richard Anthony.
Recorded and released in both a French version (Donne moi la chance) and the English version plus a mix of those two versions.
Having heard this version by Babs Tino, of whom I have never heard before, I think this is the best version of the song.

No, I think Babs did the original and Richard Anthony covered it. That was usual practice in the 60's. National singers covered the British and American hits of the time, often before the original American or British single would be available in the European countries.
This lands us funny situations, like when The Everly Brothers were doing a show in The Netherlands, also on the bill were Dutch duo The Blue Diamonds, who did the same songs, although they had "original" hits too.
