Grateful Dead

Wake Up Little Susie

Lyrics By: F and B Bryant
Music By: F and B Bryant

Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
The movie wasn't so hot
It didn't have much of a plot
We fell asleep, our goose is cooked, our reputation is shot
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

What are we gonna tell your moma
What are we gonna tell your pop
What are we gonna tell your friends when they say
Ooh la la
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

Well I told your mama that you'd be in by ten
Well now Susie baby looks like we goofed again
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie
We gotta go home

Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
We both fell sound asleep
Wake up little Susie and weep
The movie's over, it's four o'clock and we're in trouble deep
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

What are you gonna tell your moma
What are you gonna tell your pop
What are you gonna tell your friends when they say
Ooh la la
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

Well I told your mama that you'd be in by ten
Well now Susie baby looks like we goofed again
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie
We gotta go home

Played by the Grateful Dead in acoustic sets in 1970, but not subsequently.
