    Actually, you can use "I sung a song yesterday". According to Leech & Svartvik, the past form allows both "sang" and "sung". However, it is rarely used. (British national corpus returned 96 hits for "he sang" and 2 for "he sung")

    You're using two times the Past Participle form of "sing" without a form of "have", wich is quite impossible.

    These type of irregulars that change in all three categories follow alphabetical order in the past tense and participle:

    sing sang sung

    sink sank sunk

    ring rang rung
