Verses:
When I was just a lit - tle girl (boy),
I asked my moth - er,  "What will I be?
Will I be prit - ty (hand - some)?  Will I be rich?"
Here's what she said to me:
 
When I was just a child in school,
I asked my teach - er,  "What should I try?
Should I paint pic - tures?  Should I sing songs?"
This was her wise re - ply:

The fu - ture's not ours to see.
Que Se - ra, Se - ra!
What will be, will be!"
