Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'No more days of school' (Kids song)
My Mum, in NZ used to chant something similar:

One more day and we will be
Out of the gates of misery
No more marching 2 by 2
Like the monkeys in the zoo
No more spelling, no more sums
No more teachers to smack our bums
No more latin, no more french
No more sitting on a hard wood bench

I can't remember any more of that one but I heard the other one sung by Isla StClair at Loughborough FF back in 1972.
From memory it goes:

Come to my school, come to my school
It's a life of misery
There's a signpost on the corner
Saying welcome unto thee
Don't believe it, don't believe it
It's a pack of dirty lies
If it wasna for the teachers
We would be in paradise
Build a bonfire, build a bonfire
Put the Headie on the top
Put the teachers round the middle
And burn the bl***y lot!

That was sung with a Scottish accent.
