 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

She was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens.
'Till her boyfriend kicked her out in one of those crushing scenes.
What was she to do? 
Where was she to go? 
She was out on her fanny.

So over the bridge from Flushing to the Sheffield's door.
She was there to sell make-up, 
But the father saw more.
She had style! 
She had flair! 
She was there.
That's how she became the Nanny! 

Who would have guessed that the girl we've described, 
Was just exactly what the doctor prescribed? 
Now the father finds her beguiling 
(Watch out CC!)
And the kids are actually smiling 
(Such joie de vivre!).
She's the lady in red when everybody else is wearing tan.
The flashy girl from Flushing. 
The Nanny named Fran!
