I sing a song yesterday.I sung it very well. everybody is happy to hear that song i sung.


Hi Carhaeni

Your sentence should sound :

I sang a song yesterday. I sang it very well, everybody was happy to hear the song I sang.
The adverb "yesterday" requires past tense in this case.

Hope it helps
Best wishes

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. ;-)
