Can someone give me examples of songs written in first person, third person limited, and omniscient?

"Another Saturday Night," "Ob La Di, Ob La Da" and "Jackie and Diane" respectively.


"Another Saturday Night" by Sam Cooke is written in the first person. "Ob La Di, Ob La Da" by the Beatles is third person limited (the progress of a romance is described without benefit of Desmond and Molly's thought processes). "Jackie and Diane" by John Mellencamp appears to have an omniscient narrator who knows what the characters are thinking and feeling, but has no direct connection with either of them.
