There aren't any "internals" for a task which may be completed in several different ways. Likewise there isn't any "syntax" for such a task.

As for the rules, the only rule is that at most one instance of a given class may exist at any one time in a certain context. That of course is what "singleton" means.

If you're looking for practical advice, then I'd recommend using an enum with exactly one declared constant.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
