This is another of the school days song the teachers will often teach the children to sing. I remember during my primary school days the music teachers love using this song.

Recently my friend was quoting the song on her Facebook entry, so I decided to do a bit of research into the song.

The word “Que Sera Sera”  was actually not standard Spanish. According to this website  the first word first appeared “The Barefoot Contessa” . The Character Rossano Brazzi’s family motto is “Che Sera, Sera” which was written in Italian.  The song writers replaced the Italian “Che” to  The Spanish “Que” as there are more people speaking Spanish in the USA .

Those who serve in the Singapore Army will know that we have a Army version of this song. hahaha

Title: Que Sera Sera
Songwriters: LIVINGSTON, JAY / EVANS, RAY
Singer : 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 grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart what lies ahead
Will there be 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
