Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'No more days of school' (Kids song)
Don't these things travel?

This time tomorrow, where shall I be?
Not in this academy,
No more days of pain, no more days of sorrow,
No more days in this old dump,
We're going home tomorrow.
No more Latin, no more French,
No more sitting on the old school bench,
No more pencils, no more books,
No more teachers' ugly looks,
No more ........ (?forgotten) in the butter,
No more water from the gutter,
No more waspies in the jam,
Making little girls say ***,
No more spiders in the bath,
Trying hard to make me laugh.

It was a boarding school - I was a day girl. I believed the tales to be exaggeration - now I've seen the memories on friendsreunited, I'm not so sure. (Currently off-line because the mean old head teachers complained about it!)
