Songs which announce themselves as songs?

"Here's a song," "I wrote this song," "you'll hear this song," etc. Which songs feature lyrics announcing themselves as songs?

I'll start the list:

Oasis - "I'm Outta Time"

    I'd have to concur with the Phantom on this one - sounds like a reeeeal stretch to me. I was gonna do the whole Joan Redfern speech, but that's been nicely covered. I reckon IF all the tenth doc companions appear in the final episode, it'd only be something like what happened with the fourth and fifth docs, where we see inside their minds during regeneration and all the companions they've had are shown. (That wouldn't have worked for Eccleston obviously, he only had the one 'real' companion (not counting Captain Jack)). But as the Phantom's said, I reckon the Sun got hold of completely the wrong end of the stick and ran with it. Now, on the actual business of Donna being River Song...why? Why would this even enter the minds of the writers? You've got two important women, why should they be actually only be one woman? And why would you stretch the temp from Chiswick into a space-travelling archaeologist? I just don't see it, personally - strikes me as a companion variant of a disease that seems to have struck Who-fans in recent years - Fob-Watch Fever - always wanting something to be more complex and singular than it needs to be ;o)
