Wrong Key

Have you ever listened to little old me
Who seems to be singing in wrong key
And for music say I don't have an ear;
Choir started worrying and having fear.

Received strangest looks you've ever seen;
When I sang people started turning green;
If you and I in an alley were to meet
My voice would knock you off your feet.

My voice  puts people in a state of shock
And someone said piano will have to hock
To pay for all the sadness along with shame;
Try to send me back to from where I came.

Other church just committed a capital sin;
Did decide not to let her back again;
Now our whole choir will be out of lock;
With her forever, we will be stuck.

    There is a women who fits this description who has just joined my church's choir and my wife is right next to her. She throws the whole chorus off kilter. My wife is wondering how to approach the problem.
