que sera sera lyrics – jann arden

(originally by doris day)

when i was just a little girl,
i asked my mother, “what will i be?
will i be pretty?
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.
que sera, sera,
what will be, will be.”

when i was just a child in school,
i asked my teacher, “what will i try?
should i paint pictures”
should i sing songs?”
this was her wise reply:

“que sera, sera,
whatever will be, will be;
the future’s not ours to see.
que sera, sera,
what will be, will be.”

when 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.
que sera, sera,
what will be, will be.
que sera, sera!”
