Happiness Is A Warm Gun ? not a full guess. not really sure of it. just picked at random. love of guns is a kind of love i guess. plus there's that bit about holding her and pulling the trigger.

1. Credited to Lennon-McCartney.
2. The four Beatles perform on this song, and there are no other personnel featured.
3. It does not contain the word 'show' in the lyrics.
4. It has something in common with I’m Gonna Sit Right Down And Cry (Over You).
5. Album track; to the best of my knowledge, it has never been included on a Beatles single or EP release anywhere in the world.
6. It's not usually considered to be a love song, but it is expressive of a bond of love.
7. Considered to have been written by John.
8. Post-1966 song.
9. It has something in common with Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow).

Not:
Yesterday
Rain
Please Please Me
Yer Blues
Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)
Oh! Darling
Two Of Us
All You Need Is Love
I'm A Loser
I'm So Tired
Happiness Is A Warm Gun

* Happiness Is A Warm Gun is probably the closest suggestion so far, although it was included on a single with Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da released in Finland in 1969:

Sorry about that, joshthenesnerd. 

I like some of Yoko's songs, particularly Remember Love. While I appreciate that it isn't to everyone's taste, I think Don't Worry Kyoko has its appeal too.

The Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow) reference is:
* partly with respect to Yoko in terms of Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey being specifically written by John about his relationship with Yoko.
* partly the the long lengths of the two song titles:
Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow), and
Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey - the longest Beatles song title.

And in the end
The love you take is equal to the love you make
