It is not possible to transfer songs from an iOS device directly to a computer. The only way to do it is to activate the iTunes Match service (which costs money).

That said, if you purchase a song on your phone from the iTunes Store, it should copy to your computer the next time you sync.

Actually, you can transfer purchased iTunes content to your computer: your phone connected, iTunes running, without syncing: File>Transfer Purchases or right-click the phone in the left device pane & select transfer purchases. Non-purchased iTunes content you cannot transfer without using third-party software.
