Will We Have Rainbows, Day After Day? (Free Printable)

My Grandma Rose sang when she was happy, and it wasn’t until years later that I realized most of the songs she sang were by Doris Day. Que Sera, Sera was one of her favorites.

I thought it would make a sweet print for Eleanor, though I did take a little liberty with the lyrics. Doris asks her mother, “Will I be pretty, will I be rich?”, and she asks her sweetheart the line about rainbows. I transposed them because I thought it was better for a little girl’s room that way, and the fact that I could make “RAINBOWS” in rainbow colors may have swayed me a little too.

You may download and print this PDF for your own personal use. The file is 8″x10″, so it will print nicely on a sheet of paper. I used card stock and a white wooden frame from Target.

I’d love to see it if you put this print in your own home too!

    Thanks for posting this, Nicole. My mom sang that song to me all the time while I was growing up. Now that she’s moving out of the state next week, I’d be great to put it up in my one-year-old’s bedroom as a reminder of her grandmother. Thanks again!!

    I love those curtains!

    Did you change out the curtains in your daughter’s room?

    Are they from land of nod like the bedding for your daughter’s bed?

      No, these are the curtains that are still up in the nursery (from Pottery Barn Kids). I took the photo there, but I’ve since moved the print into Eleanor’s room.

    This is exactly what I’ve been looking for for a friend’s daughter’s birthday present – thank you! Would you mind sharing the fonts you used? I’m thinking of making a companion piece that I’d love to match. Cheers!

    This just made my day! I love this song and actually have Doris Day on vinyl and play it on my record player pretty often. Thanks for the happy little bit of sunshine!

  20. Becky k May 31, 2011 at 8:28 pm #

    Oh I just love this but it’s not letting me download it. Do you know why? Am I doing something wrong ? :)

  21. QingyuanMama May 31, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    Thanks from my 9-year old and me! I just sang her the song, she loves the print, and we’re going to print and hang. You’re so sweet to share these things.

  22. Alichia June 5, 2011 at 10:23 am #

    Totally going to print and frame for my 3 month old niece, Lacey Olivia :)
    Thanks!

  23. jenny June 7, 2011 at 1:12 am #

    Thanks! I found the jpeg copy for my girls’ room. My grandmother used to play her Doris Day albums all the time and I used to tell my grandpa that I loved him “1 million purple rainbows” -my two favorite things when I was 5. Rainbows are special in my house. Sweet memories of the world’s greatest grandparents. Thanks!

  24. Rachel June 7, 2011 at 8:58 am #

    This reminded me a great brazilian song, “O que Será?”, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gjv64g6_oc&feature=related

  25. Sharon June 7, 2011 at 9:39 pm #

    I was wondering how you got the rainbow text have that water color effect.

  26. charmaine June 11, 2011 at 2:06 pm #

    so absolutely pretty! I’m gonna have it printed and mounted on my wall.

    thank you so much nicole! it will definitely bring a nice burst of lovely color to my room!:) thank u thank u.:)

  27. Shannon@amomsyear June 24, 2011 at 9:03 am #

    Thank you for the print download! I love this song AND Doris Day. (And the movie she sang it in.) Gorgeous nursery…we’ve passed through the nursery stage (sigh), but it’s still fun to look. :-)

  28. Abby June 26, 2011 at 11:53 am #

    This is just lovely, how kind to share it! x

  29. Sammi July 5, 2011 at 1:39 am #

    I just printed this and framed it in an Ikea white frame for my friend’s little girl who recently turned 5… and it turned out so pretty! Thanks for sharing your gorgeous creation :)

  30. Deebi27 July 10, 2011 at 8:35 pm #

    Que Sera, Sera – this rings so loud in my memory. This is one of those Mom (has been gone 31 yrs now :o() memories that I don’t have the chance to bring back so easily. YOU made that spark this evening! Thank you for this, as I heard my Mother say this to be oh so many times as a child/ teenager growing up!

  31. Robin July 24, 2011 at 8:46 am #

    My mom recently passed away and will miss seeing her first great grandchild. She sang this to us as kids- the song is well known in the family….I’m going to print this and give it as a gift next Saturday at the baby shower. It’s sure to bring lots of happy tears! Thank you! And thank you for changing up the lyrics!

  32. Ashley S September 8, 2011 at 1:41 pm #

    I absolutely adore this. It reminds me so much of grandma. I’m definitely going to print and hang it up somewhere. :)

  33. Elle September 19, 2011 at 1:43 pm #

    Thank you for this. I used it as part of my living room gallery wall.

  34. Laura @Ms Smartie Pants October 19, 2011 at 8:23 pm #

    I’m new to your blog and just saw this. I love it! I sang that song to all 4 of my kids when they were little. The oldest is about to turn 31 and the youngest is 17. Great memories! And as for taking liberty with the lyrics, my first 3 were boys so yep I have done that too! This is just lovely, I will have to print it and keep it in my “one day I’ll be a grandma” box!

  35. Kaelie March 29, 2012 at 1:46 am #

    Talent. That’s what you have: Talent. How did you create the water color effect? Did you use photoshop or illustrator?

  36. Oum May 3, 2012 at 3:36 am #

    I just love how you made the song lyrics your own ! Will definitely keep this in my favorite for my girl’s next bedroom :)

  37. Mery September 4, 2012 at 8:28 am #

    I really love this print and I really want to display it on my daughter’s birthday party. But I can’t download it (it seems there is a file damage or something like that). Could you please email me the file to meryatmodjo@gmail.com. I really appreciate your help. Thanks…

    The Que Sera Sera print is wonderful – I sing this to my little ones as my Mum used to sing this to me when I was young, and she is no longer here so this will be a great way to have a happy memory around the house. Thank you xxx

    This is so sweet!
    I like singing “Que sera, sera” too! Loved Doris Day’s movies!
