There were a number of 60s garage bands that did some variation of the “wake me, shake me” song… some appearing as “Wake Me, Shake Me,” others as “Don’t Let Me Sleep Too Long.” (Why not sleep late? Because it’s “gonna be another day of wine, women and song.”)
Probably the best-known version is The Blues Project’s “Wake Me…”.
I’ve run on the assumption that these are all derivative of some old blues song(s). Is this true, and if so what song(s)? Or was The Blues Project the original?
Thanks in advance.
