Que Sera, Sera

Filed under: Introspection — Randomizer @ 6:39 pm

A classic 1934 song, ‘Que Sera Sera’ was one of my Dad’s favourites. I remember him singing this one when I was as little as 8 years old.

Consequently, this song takes me back to my childhood days, every time I hear this song or remember it for some reason. I Googled the song to read the lyrics, that I’d forgotten, and couldn’t help myself but post it.

A tribute to a wonderful philosophy of life:

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

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

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

“Que sera, sera” after a li’l researching on the net, I found is Spanish for “What will be, will be”.

I remember the New Year of ’05. I was at a friend’s place, and the countdown to ’05 had begun. We rushed to our terrace for we knew that some great fireworks were awaiting us. A thought entered my mind then.

New year of ’06 … where will I be ? I had applied to 8 colleges in the US and not heard from a single one. Will it work out ? Will I get an admission ? Will I get my visa ? Will I go ?

Fast forward to 30 days ago. Las Vegas , amidst ten thousand crazy people , chanting the countdown for New year of ’06.

Fireworks light the sky for ten whole minutes… and I say to the person that I was a year ago, standing on that terrace wondering about where I’d be,

” Que Sera, Sera.
Whatever will be , will be,
The future’s not ours to see,
Que Sera, Sera”

  3. Man!! You write well. Someday if you decide to start writing and need a sponsor, and if I can, I will sponsor you!!

    Btw, I thought “Que sera sera” was French!! In fact I’m quite sure its French for “what will be, will be”

    Also good job with the snaps!!
