I'm looking for songs that have as their first lyric the word 'Hey'. For example there's that kinda-famous Beatles song 'Hey Jude', where the first sung word is 'Hey.' Hey me up!

Genre no object, though I particularly like offbeat indie, soul and disco, new- and no-wave. Three minute pop songs are super-bestest, whether they're smooth as silk or abrasive as Mark E Smith strung out like roadkill.
I'd also accept slight bendings of the formula - I think the album (and indeed track) 'What's Goin' On' by Marvin Gaye opens with background chitchat, and the first discernible line in the conversation is 'Hey man, what's happening? Great party man.'
Let me know your best Hey-starting songs!
