Lyrics

Alvin:
When I was just a little boy, I asked old David
What will I be?

The Chipmunks:
Will I be handsome? Will I be rich?
Here's what he said to me:

Kids:
Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera

The Chipmunks:
What will be, will be

Alvin:
When I was just a child in school, I asked my teacher
What should I try?

The Chipmunks:
Should I paint pictures? Should I sing songs?
This was her wise reply:

Kids:
Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be
The future's not ours to see
Que sera, sera

The Chipmunks:
What will be, will be

Alvin:
When I have children of my own
They'll ask old Alvin

Simon & Theodore:
What will I be?
Will I be handsome? Will I be rich?

Alvin:
I'll tell them tenderly:

The Chipmunks & Kids:
Que sera, sera
Whatever will be, will be

The Chipmunks:
The future's not ours to see

Kids:
Que sera, sera

The Chipmunks:
What will be, will be

The Chipmunks & Kids:
Que sera, sera
