  as we know from this very well known song
Qué será, qué será, qué será.
Qué será de mi vida, qué será
Si sé mucho o no sé nada,
ya mañana se verá y será, será lo que será.
What will be will be
what will be with my live will be
If I know much or do not know nothing
tomorrow we'll see
and what will be will be.

¿Qué sabrá un puerco de aviones? Nada!
= What does a pig know about airplanes? Nothing! (What will a pig know)
¿Qué hará él en Francia?
= What might he do in France? (What he will do?)
