Ahhh Girl said
The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill

What did you kill, Bungalow Bill?

"The children asked him if to kill was not a sin…" So, we may draw the conclusion that the children did ask a question, but John did not write it as a question. No tell-tale question mark appears, which would have made this a slam-dunk. So, I will have to submit this to the judges for a ruling, and I will abide by the decision. Judges, what say ye?

Drive My Car

Asked a girl what she wanted to be

She said "baby, can't you see"?

 

It's Only Love

Why should i feel the way i do?

Is it right that you and i should fight, every night?

Haven't I the right to make it up girl?

 

Baby's In Black

Oh! dear, what can i do?

Tell me, oh what can i do?

Oh, how long will it take, till she sees the mistake she has made?

You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

How can I even try?

How could she say to me, "Love will find a way"?

You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)

You know my name, you know my number, what's up with you? (Ha!)

The two lyrics sites I checked both have a question mark. Where did you see it without a question mark? We will get to the bottom of this to make a proper ruling. This is the Beatles Bible forum after all. We must maintain the highest level of truth and accuracy.

Lady Madonna

Who finds the money, when you pay the rent?

Did you think that money was heaven-sent?

There was no question mark after "Wonder how you manage to make ends meet." I wondered if there would be, and there wasn't.

Long, Long, Long

How could I ever have lost you?

How can I ever misplace you?

Ask Me Why

Um… er… nothing. Amazingly, in a song titled "Ask Me Why," nobody asks anybody anything! Not one single question is queried. And I-I-I-I wanna know… Why not?

And, conversely, "Tell Me Why" has one!

And don't you know that it's just you?

Honey Pie
-Will the wind that blew her boat
Across the sea
Kindly send her sailing back to me?

She Came In Through The Bathroom Window

-Didn’t anybody tell her?
-Didn’t anybody see?

Come And Get It

-Did I hear you say that there must be a catch?
-Will you walk away from a fool and his money?

 

I Call Your Name
-Was I to blame for being unfair?
-Don't you know I can't take it?

Savoy Truffle
-We all know Ob-La-Di-Bla-Da
But can you show me, where you are?

I Am The Walrus

… hmmm? … oh, well...I'll suggest it here.

After all, it was “co-created” by John and Shakespeare,

from King Lear (Act IV, Scene 6), lines 249–262

Oswald: Slave, thou hast slain me. Villain, take my purse.
If ever thou wilt thrive, bury my body,
And give the letters which thou find'st about me
To Edmund, Earl of Gloucester; seek him out
Upon the English party. O, untimely Death!
Edgar: I know thee well: a serviceable villain;
As duteous to the vices of thy mistress
As badness would desire.
Gloucester: WHAT, IS HE DEAD?
Edgar: Sit you down father, rest you.

I know when it's a dream.
