Can you identfy the song lyric hinted at here? Read from left to right, from the top.

    $\begingroup$ @QBrute Perhaps the best song ever written about erotic woodcarving and frozen natto. $\endgroup$

I think it is:

"Wouldn't it be nice" by the Beach Boys.

With the translation:

WOODEN TEAT | BEAN ICE | SIF WEEK | HOOD | WEIGH CUP
Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up

Fixed now to be "Sif Week", since I just noticed they are all characters called Sif. Duh.

Oh, and slight extra:

The Beach Boys also sang "God Only Knows" which is the puzzle title!

And an edit note:

I realise that one word could be replaced by a "better" homophone, but it was purposefully edited to this to be as polite as possible... ^^;

  • $\begingroup$ And it wasn't my first version with fewer letters? :P I "cleaned it up" to this word, which is at least anatomically correct... if not quite as homophonic. ^^; $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Personally, I am not offended... But I have no idea what the rules are and this seemed like a good way to get out of the problem ;p $\endgroup$
