Error including bibliography in tabular environment

When trying to include a list of references in a tabular environment I get the following error sourced from the .bbl file:

ERROR: LaTeX Error: Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item.

Is there an easy fix? An example is below:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@article{auth00a,
author = {Author, A},
journal = {Journal A},
title = {MyBook A},
year = {2000}
}
\end{filecontents*}
\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{l}
\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{plain}
\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{tabular}

\end{document}


l columns are like \mbox and can not take vertical display material like a list, use a p column, which is like \parbox, so replace l by p{5cm} or whatever you need, but a 1-column tabular does not serve much purpose, so simply removing the tabular would also work.
