Music: Who Are You?

I'm looking for songs in which an introduction is made. A name or nickname must be present. Contractions are okay. First, second or third person is valid. Metaphors and similes are invalid.

Acceptable: I am the Walrus (valid only if "the Walrus" is an authorized nickname)
Rejectable: He's a real nowhere man
Acceptable: I am Iron Man
Rejectable: I'm a real wild one
Rejectable: We're the kids of America
Rejectable: Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste
Rejectable: We are the World (metaphors not allowed)

Robb has unearthed a good one.
"My name is Sue" A BOY NAMED SUE by Johnny Cash

Here's an obvious entry:
"My name is...Slim Shady" MY NAME IS by Eminem

Ready to be rejected by Shell:

"I am the God of Hell Fire."

"My name is Jack and I live in the back of the Greta Garbo Home."

"Please be upstanding for the Mayor of Simpleton."

"They call me Mellow Yellow."

"Here comes Johnny Yen, again."

As I am in a good mood, I will accept all of these. The last one is a bit iffy, but what the hey.

Here is an additional offering:
"Well my name's John Lee Pettimore"

How could we forget, "My name is Luka"?
