Sorry, this doesn't mean anything. Have no idea of the 'pitch' of the notes.
For example.... the 3rd note D ...... is this 5 notes below A, or 4 notes above?
It looks like it could be in G major - but that's all can be detected.

If you could put the notes onto a treble clef stave (even just as dots) scan it & send it here .... might be able to help.
Also - there is no rhythmic value of each note.... crotchets/ minims/ rests etc....

Long B at the beginning, up to the first D, and then more or less down from there on? Not the opening phrase, but I'm willing to bet money you're singing Ravel's Pavane Pour Une Enfante Defunte.

Am I right or am I right?
