05/20/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Bread and Butter

“The history of the world is the record of a man
in quest for his daily bread and butter
.”

- Hendrik Willem van Loon
(14 Jan 1882 – 11 Mar 1944)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   How about a Golden Oldie from 1964?

BONUS - Bread and Butter - The Newbeats, 1964

                


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread_and_Butter_%28The_Newbeats_song%29:

"Bread and Butter" is a 1964 song by The Newbeats. Written by Larry Parks and Jay Turnbow, "Bread and Butter" was the group's first and most popular hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September 1964 for two weeks,[1][2] while attaining the same position on Cashbox for one week.[3] The song reached #15 in the United Kingdom[4] and #8 in Australia. It sold over one million copies in the United States, attaining a gold disc.[1][4]

"Bread and Butter" served as The Newbeats' demo in an effort to obtain a recording contract with Hickory Records. They were then asked to formally record the track for the label.[1]

The opening two-chord piano riff and the lead falsetto singing voice of Larry Henley are notable features of the song...

From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/19/14:

Fun Things To Do In An Elevator:

1. Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside ask: "Got enough air in there?"

2. Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering: "Shut up, all of you just shut UP!"

3. Whistle the first seven notes of "It's a Small World" incessantly.

4. Sell Girl Scout cookies.

5. On a long ride, sway side to side at the natural frequency of the elevator.

6. Greet everyone getting on the elevator with a warm handshake and ask them to call you Admiral

7. When at least 8 people have boarded, moan from the back: "Oh, not now, motion sickness!"

8. Meow occasionally.

9. Wear a puppet on your hand and talk to other passengers "through" it.

10. Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers that this is your "personal space."

Bread and Butter

- Written by Larry Parks and Jay Turnbow

Recorded by The Newbeats, 1964


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

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

She don't cook mashed potatoes,
She don't cook T-bone steaks,
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.

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,
I found my baby eating
With some other man.
