I'll include a awful current hit as Meghan Trainor's "Lips Are Movin" mentions her even worse debut song "All About That Bass" Prediction these will be her only Top 40 hits & in a year or two she will be forgotten.
I just heard Rufus Thomas' "The Breakdown" (in the 9/18/71 AT40), which refers to his previous hits "Do the Funky Chicken" and "Do the Push and Pull". He may not have exactly repeated the wording of the titles of the previous hits, but it was obvious he was referencing them.
Not necessarily related, but in "Yesterday Once More", Carpenters have "Sing" in a few places like: -Waitin' for my favorite songs when they played I'd sing along -It was songs of love that I would sing to then
In "We're All Alone", Rita Coolidge mentions: And "you" can be with me ("You" being her later #25 hit) (as well as few other places like in "All Time High")
I'm sure there are plenty other one-word more generic song titles elsewhere; they might come around to me in time.
Janet Jackson and Bread had "If". Michael Jackson had "Bad" and "Jam". Annie Lennox had "Why". The Bee Gees, U2, Metallica, and Three Dog Night had "One". Heart had "Never".

I have to double check in case someone already posted this obvious bit: Madonna's "Deeper & Deeper" stole lyrically from "Vogue."
At the end of D&D she sings: You got to just let your body move to the music, you got to just let your body go with the flow.
That's a bit of a morph, but it's quite referential to the chorus of Vogue: C'mon, vogue, let your body move to the music, hey, hey, hey c'mon, vogue, let your body go with the flow, you know you can do it.
