OK. For the record. In Melbourne Australia, mid 1950s, we sang the song that Joe gives above:

School's out, school's out!
The teachers let the monkeys out.
No more pencils, no more books,
No more teachers' dirty looks!

Sometimes with the added line --
Kick the tables, kick the chairs, kick the teachers down the stairs!(also in Joe's post)

Truelove (born and raised in USA) adds that he saw the line "no more pencils etc" in an "Archie" comic around 1950. He didn't sing it and didn't know how it was sung. (In Aus. we chanted it.)
Cheers, Joy
