Lets start at the very beginning
A very good place to start

When you read yo begin with A-B-C
When you sing you begin with DO-RE-MI

Child: do re mi
DO RE MI...

The first three notes just happen to be: DO-RE-MI
CHild: do re mi...

DO-RE-MI-FA-SOL-LA-TI...
Oh let me see if I can make it easier

DOE-- A DEER A FEMALE DEER
RAY-- A DROP OF GOLDEN SUN
ME-- A NAME I CALL MYSELF
FAR-- A LONG LONG WAY TO RUN
SEW-- A NEEDLE PULLING THREAD
LA-- A NOTE TO FOLLOW SEW
TEA-- A DRINK WITH JAM AND BREAD
THAT WILL BRING US BACK TO DO... oh oh oh

DOE-- A DEER A FEMALE DEER
RAY-- A DROP OF GOLDEN SUN
ME-- A NAME I CALL MYSELF
