Arrgh! My book title is from a song!

I have just started writing poetry and short stories have entered a short story for a competition. I am so pleased that some ideas are coming as I've not written creatively for 20 years when I just felt stuck for inspiration!

I am not sure I will get anywhere and my story will be rejected as I've quoted song lyrics. Does anyone know if this means an automatic rejection due to copyright etc?
