The song is sung by a deranged stalker who is unable to contact his apparently unfaithful girlfriend, although he knows she is home 
"They said it wasn’t you, but I saw you peek through your window".
According to Lennon in a 1972 interview, The Beatles’ music publisher Dick James was quite pleased with "No Reply":
“I remember Dick James coming up to me after we did this one and saying, ‘You’re getting better now — that was a complete story.’ Apparently, before that, he thought my songs wandered off.”
In his last major interview, Lennon said that lyrically, the song was inspired by "Silhouettes", a 1957 song first recorded and released by doo-wop group the Rays.
The ukulele version is performed and perfumed by Mike Borgia who has never stalked anyone.. So he says.
