Anyone noticed that "When You Gonna Wake Up" has a question mark in the booklet and on the box.

What shall I say? Normally I wake up around 7.30?

I always thought it should have a question mark. It is a question after all.




I wake up at 6:30 am

There's no such mark on Slow Train Coming, which I think is right. No question. When you gonna wake up strengthen the things that remain.

The official lyrics on BobDylan.com say:

"When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain?"

Maybe the title shouldn't have a question mark, but apparently the title is at least part of a question.

I guess the question mark is not needed here. It's not supposed to be a question, after all. More like an advice, or even an order: You better wake up now

as was the original source for the title, in Revelation 3, verse 2: "Wake up, and strengthen what remains ..."

I'm sorry, but did you really just start a thread about a question mark?

No, about the correct spelling of the song's title.
