Robert,

How would you punctuate the phrase in prose? Some type of punctuation is necessary if the phrase appears in continuous text.

Regarding the "God knows" response, in that case, God is being used as the specified subject of the sentence, implying that 'only God knows'. Therefore, it would not be the same as "Who knows", which is in fact a question, implying 'does anyone really know'.

Not to be too picky, but the original poster did say the English language. Words such as bourgeois, rendez vous and even sioux are not acquisitions from other languages.
