The song was written by Larry Parks and Jay Turnbow. It became the first and most popular hit for The Newbeats. It features the lead falsetto singing of Larry Henley and a memorable two-chord piano riff. The group used this as a demo for Hickory Records, and then recorded it for the label. In 1964, the single backed with “Tough Little Buggy” on the B-Side, went to #2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Cashbox as well as #15 in the U.K. and #8 in Australia.

The Newbeats formed in Shreveport, Louisiana,in 1964. The trio included Larry Henley, Dean Mathis, and Mark Mathis. They dissolved in 1974. They had success with “Run Baby Run (Back Into My Arms” and “Don’t Turn Me Loose” and “Crying My Heart Out Over You.” Henley was a co-songwriter of “The Wind Beneath My Wing”, which was recorded by Bette Middler for the soundtrack to the film Beaches.

Here are the lyrics to “Bread and Butter” by The Newbeats:

I feel likes bread and butter,
I feel likes toast and jam,
That’s what baby feeds him
If he’s her loving man.

Well, I like bread and butter,
I like toast and jam,
That’s what baby feeds me,
I’m her loving man.

I feel likes bread and butter,
I feel likes toast and jam,
That’s what baby feeds him
He’s her loving man.

Well, she don’t cook mashed potatoes,
She don’t cook T-bone steaks,
She don’t feed me peanut butter,
She knows that I can’t take.

He likes bread and butter,
He likes toast and jam,
That’s what his baby feeds him,
He’s her loving man.

Well, I got home early one morning,
Much to my surprise,
She was eating chicken and dumplings
With some other guy.

No more bread and butter,
No more toast and jam,
He found his baby eating
With some other man.

No more bread and butter,
No more toast and jam,
I found my baby eating
With some other man.

No, no, no…

No more bread and butter,
No more toast and jam,
No more bread and butter,
No more toast and jam.
