    Hendrix shortened the title, but it started as a question: "Hey Joe, Where You Gonna Go?"

    Wrong name (it’s actually Rose Marie), and in any case that’s not the title of the song. It’s simply “Smile a Little Smile for Me.”

    Sorry about the name, but: isn't it in the form of a question in the song?

    Oops, sorry. I’m getting confused between this and the two girls’ names thread, and just wasn’t paying attention. My fault.

    No. It’s a statement or a request.

    One chorus goes “So come on, smile a little...”

    I think another goes “Won’t you...” but that still a stretch to call that a question.
