Well I woke up this morning,I woke up yesterday too
Well I woke up this morning,I woke up yesterday too
And if I wake up tomorrow,
Then that'll be three in a row.

Reminds me very much of a *different* blues parody, by Martin Mull. I only remember the first verse (I'm not sure that there are any additional verses!), and have posted it before in a thread about "New Age Blues" or "White Man's Blues" or "Suburban Blues" or some such...

I woke up this afternoon / And I saw both cars were gone.
I woke up this afternoon / And I saw both cars were gone.
I felt so sad and lonesome / I threw my drink across the lawn.

I woke up this morning and got myself dressed
I had the blues so bad...I was gravely distressed

Hey, my verse is historically accurate

Woke up this morning, they was grinding trees
Eight o'clock in the morning, they was grinding trees
Cat licks my face, saying "Feed me mama, please."

it's from Sick Man Blues by the Goodies!

"I turned over to my wife
and I threw up all over her...
etc
..Lord have mercy
I got the Sick Man Blues"

In full if you want it!

SICK MAN BLUES
(Oddie)


I woke up one morning, feeling so sick I thought I was dead (Oh yes I did)
I felt sick in my stomach and I felt sick in my head (Oh yeah)
So I rolled over on my pillow, and I threw up all over the bed
(You did, I know you did. You hear that?   I heard that)

I turned round to my wife, and I threw up all over her (Why you do that?!)
I threw up on the cat, and I threw up on the baby's chair (All over the chair)
Now five years I've been travellin', and I've thrown up everywhere!

I've thrown up in California, thrown up in Timbuktu
Now come on over here baby and I'll throw up over you!
Throw it up, throw it up, up up [blech], throw it up, throw it up, up up [bleah]
Oh Lord I'm tellin' you, I got those sick man blues
(I'll tell you a little bit more now)

Well I've thrown up over Indians, I've thrown up over Jews
I've even thrown up on my blue suede shoes
Throw it up, throw it up, up up [blech], throw it up, throw it up, up up [bleah]
Oh Lord I'm tellin' you, I got those sick man blue … ooooooh … [bleah … bleah … bleah!]
(Better out than in, man!)

Wendell Ferguson sang something like:

When you sing the blues, you always repeat the first line,
Yah, when you sing the blues you always repeat the first line,
That's what makes the blues so easy, you only have to think of one rhyme.


If you wanna play the blues you only have to know three chords,
Yes to play the blues you only have to know three chords,
(Fumbles around making an awful noise, then sings)
I guess I'll have to learn one more.

Is there a parody that begins,

I didn't wake up this morning ?

The sun's gonna shine in my back door some day.
[louder] I SAID, the sun's gonna shine in my back door some day.
You can tell by that, I got the North-Facing Front Door Blues.
