Another Day, Another Club ...

On Tuesday evening, (being the 4th day of August, in the year of our Lord 2012, after the 8th turn of the hour-glass,) several of us were welcomed to attend The Chichester Folk Song Club to hear Keith Kendrick and Sylvia Needham.
They performed two sets of stonking songs. Here they are performing elsewhere:

This is one for the community song-book ...

OK, that's not as good as Keith and Sylvia's rendition, but you'll get the idea.

Here's the first verse and chorus:

Oh, have you heard the news, me Johnny:
One more day.
We're homeward bound tomorrow:
One more day.
Only one more day, me Johnny,
One more day.
Oh, rock and row [roll] me over.*
One more day.

For the rest you can make up the verses as you go along.
Otherwise it's all chorus!

* So: who really invented rock and roll?
