Similarly in (ballad of the) Yarmouth castle he does mention the ships name but like "Ode" omits "Ballad" so??

these are ALL legitimate responses except for the one Royal (a hint as to who the author was) blunder by a member. No penalty but it sure was a flagrant fowle.

How about Song for a Winter's Night? Does that fit with the rules?

I guess that is a moot point Ann
In fact the song's lyrics do include almost two of the five words (i.e nearly 40%) in the full title (albeit a singular night not in quantity) . so if that does not qualify at 40% then Seven Island Suite with 66 2/3 % should not be in the list either
then you should also disqualify Steel Rail Blues also 66 2/3%
and BALLAD OF THE Yarmouth Castle (40%)
and ODE TO Big Blue and The Gypsy (both 50%)
AND wot aboot The List then (both words appear in the lyrics although admittedly not adjacent to each other
In addition CRT has 33 1/3%
