Jay Livingston & Ray Evans Quotations

When I was just a little girl/boy,
I asked my mother, “What will I be ?
Will I be pretty/handsome ?
Will I be rich ?”
Here’s what she said to me :
“Que Sera, Sera
Whatever will be, will be,
The future’s not ours to see,
What will be, will be.”

Then I grew up and fell in love,
I asked my sweetheart, ‘what lies ahead?
Will we have rainbows, day after day?
Here’s what my sweetheart said:
“Que sera, sera,
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see.
Que sera, sera,
What will be, will be.”

Now I have children of my own
They ask their mother what will I be
Will I be handsome, will I be rich?
I tell them tenderly
“Que Sera, Sera
Whatever will be, will be,
The future’s not ours to see,
What will be, will be.
Que Sera, Sera”
