When you can't sing well, you can say 'carry a tune'. But is 'carry the tune' correct to say?

While I was singing the song, I couldn't carry the tune.

    It sound fine to me.

    The only real difference is that "the" refers to a specific song/tune, while saying "a" implies that the person can't sing any tune.
