Chief Turnip Acts Like Goose Schnappi Still In Top Twenty

Samuel’s Musicians Of The Week

October 17th, 2005 at 06:39pm

In an effort to give my recent editorial a longer reign at the top of the front page, I delayed the usual Sunday features by a day, so I’ll bring them to you now.

This week the musicians of the week are The Everly Brothers, and the feature song from them is Wake Up Little Susie which got to number 1 on the charts for 4 weeks. Interestingly this song was also recorded by a number of other artists, including Simon & Garfunkel, but they didn’t do quite as well with it, only reaching 27th place on the charts.

Wake up, little Susie, wake up
Wake up, little Susie, wake up
We’ve both been 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, well

Whatta we gonna tell your mama
Whatta we gonna tell your pa
Whatta we gonna tell our 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 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
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, well

Whatta we gonna tell your mama
Whatta we gonna tell your pa
Whatta we gonna tell our friends when they say “ooh-la-la”
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie
Wake up little Susie

    Wake Up Little Susie wasn’t bad, but I remember around that time I rather liked “Hello Mary Lou” by Ricky Nelson .
