iTunes won't delete songs off iPhone 4S


I have an iPhone 4S and am using the latest version of iTunes. I am trying to delete songs off of my iPhone using iTunes. Once I plug my phone in iTunes opens up and I select the music folder listed under my phone. It then brings up the songs. I select a song, right click, and select delete but nothing happens. The song remains. I'm not to familiar with how syncing works but I tried unchecking some songs and then syncing but they stay listed on the phone. There is no option to "manually manage songs". Only an option to manually manage videos.

As a side note, awhile ago I connected this phone to my work computer which also has all my iTunes songs on it. I don't know if this makes anything change. Honestly I've only ever used my ipod for music so if it's something stupid I'm missing I apologize in advance. Thanks in advance for your help.

Disconnect your iPhone and then open iTunes (phone disconnected). Delete the song from iTunes. That much should work.  

Now plug in the iPhone and I think it will ask you if you wish to delete the song. It does ask me when I do this to delete software I no longer want.
