This song is in 3/4 waltz time and in the key of C.
When I was just a little girl (boy),
I asked my mother,  "What will I be?
Will I be pritty (handsome)?  Will I be rich?"
Here's what she said to me:
When I was just a child in school,
I asked my teacher,  "What should 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!"
"Que Sera, Sera!"
