It was a collaboration Harb.
“We wrote it in my house (Kenwood),” Lennon stated shortly after the song was released. “I had a little bit of a song, which I’d played around at writing, called something like ‘Keep Your Hands Off My Babe.’ Anyway, it was floating around for a long time and, when Paul came over, we decided to, sort of, adapt it. We wrote ‘Help!’ after we had been told of the film’s title. We never write to fit in with the story line, but this one seemed to fit okay.”
