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

Johnny could only sing one note 
And the note he sang was this: aaaahh 
Poor Johnny One Note 

Sang out with Gusto 
And just overloaded the place
Poor Johnny One Note 
Yelled willy-nilly 
Until he was blue in the face
For holding one note was his ace 
Couldn't hear the brass 
Couldn't hear the drum
He was in a class 
By himself, by gum
Poor Johnny One Note 

Got in Aida indeed a great chance to be brave
He took his one note 
Howled like the North Wind 
Brought forth wind that made critics rave
While Verdi turned round in his grave 
Couldn't hear the flute 

Or the big trombone
Everyone was mute 
Johnny stood alone
Cats and dogs stopped yapping 
Lions in the zoo 
Were all jealous of Johnny's big thrill
Thunderclaps stopped clapping 
Traffic ceased its roar 
And they tell us Niag'ra stood still
He stopped the trainwistles 
All whistles bowed to his skill 
Sing Johnny One Note 
Sing out with gusto 
And just overwhelm all the crowd 

So sing, Johnny One Note out loud 
Sing, Johnny One Note 
Sing - Johnny - One Note - Out loud
