Subject: RE: Lyr Req: 'No more days of school' (Kids song)
In the Essex (UK) primary schools I attended, I recall that we sang the following at the start of the last day of term:

"One more day of school
One more day of sorrow
One more day in this old dump
We stay at home tomorrow!"

This was to a variant of "One man went to mow".

Also, to the tune of "The Ash Grove" we sang:

"Our teacher's got a bunion
And a face like a pickled onion
A nose like a squashed banana
And legs like matchsticks"

Ah, childhood, such innocence(!?)
