Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'No more days of school' (Kids song)
I'm currently doing A levels and we used to sing variations of this all the time:

One more day and I shall be,
out of this place of misery,
god made the bees, bees made the honey,
we do all the work, but the masters get the money.
no more Latin no more French,
no more sitting on the hard school bench,
no more marmite in the butter,
no more water from the gutter,
no more spiders in my tea,
smirking all so smug at me,
no more earwigs in the stew,
canings make us black and blue,
kick the tables, kick the chairs,
kick the master down the stairs,
if that master interferes,
knock him down and box him ears,
if he's not content with that,
fry his face in bacon fat,
if that does not serve him right,
blow him up with dynamite,
build a bonfire, build a bonfire,
put headmaster on the top,
stick the monitors in the middle,
then we'll burn the bl**dy lot!

This, at a 400 year old boarding school, and we still sing it when feeling especially mutinous. Makes the masters uneasy.
