Is there a Russian saying that is similar to the English phrase 'rise and shine' when you want to wake someone up?

    First one is little bit ironic. At least I use it with irony.

If we talk about "boys", then I can only think of "military-style": Рота, подъём!


Also, If you want to parody someone, who can't wake up fast, you can say: "Поднимите мне веки!" (It is citation from Viy)
