    Both seem correct to me, why isn't it a participle here ?

    (And you're correct... I have not studied english grammar at the least. I guess school in america assume we'll learn it on our own.)
    They are not both correct.

    Sung is the past participle of to sing, sang is the past form. You don't say " I sung a song". Instead, you say "I've sung a song."

    That's the difference. =P
