"Wake Up Little Susie" is a popular song written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant and published in 1957.


The song is best known in a recording by The Everly Brothers. It is written from the point of view of a high school boy to his girlfriend, Susie. In the song, the two go out on a date to a drive-in movie theater, only to fall asleep during the movie. They do not wake up until 4 o’clock in the morning, well after the 10 o’clock curfew. They then contemplate the reactions of her parents and their friends.


Although banned in such places as Boston, the song does not state that Susie and her boyfriend had sexual relations. Indeed, it strongly implies that they did not: the couple simply fell asleep because they were bored by the film.


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
