Try File > Export for your song and save it to your Desktop as an AIFF (you can change the folder you save the song to).

Then Audacity > Quit Audacity and make sure your are following the installation instructions correctly: http://audacityteam.org/download/mac . You should not be running Audacity from the DMG, in case that is what you are doing.
