Can anyone help me locate the lyrics to this song sung by the Irish Rovers?

I probably cannot help, UNLESS it's the song I know as "Bread and Butter", recorded by the Newbeats, and a rock 'n' roll chart hit in the early 60's. Starts off: "I like bread and butter, I like toast and jam, that's what baby feeds me...". If that's the one, let me know, I can get the rest of the words.

Found the album for sale, here,, I would "assume" it has the words, if that helps. It's about half way down the page. Click Edit, then Find on this page "butter"

Thanks for your help, Gary. No, it's not the song by the Newbeats. It's definitely the Irish Rovers one. Thanks for the LP location, Sorcha. So now it's just a matter of getting a copy of that LP unless someone else has the lyrics or a location where they're listed.

I'm sure glad it wasn't that song by the newbeats-that was a TERRIBLE song, sung in an awful falsetto. I have plenty of good musical memories from the 60's, but that wasn't one of 'em!

No more bread and butter
No more pizza and beer
No spagetti and meatballs
I hope I made myself clear

Good bye to lasagna
Farewell burgers and fries
...I forget the rest

I went to the doctor for my yearly review
I knew I might be over by a pound or two
But when I took my clothes off and stepped up on the scale
The doctor looked at me and he said you FAIL.

   Refrain
No more bread and butter, no more pizza and beer
No spaghetti and meat balls, I hope I made myself clear.
Good-bye to lasagna, farewell burgers and fries
Arrive derci pasta, no more Baked Alaska 'til 1995

He said my body realy was a hell of a mess
he'd like me to wieht about 50 pdns less
Start some exercising, look out for your heart
There's no time like the present for you to starts

   Refrain

I thought that losing weight would just be a breeze
Carrot sticks and lettuce and some cottage cheese
But eating rabbit food couldn't make me forsake
That burning desire for a big t-bone steak.

Well, I lasted a week, but I can't take it no more
My knees are shaking and my head is sore
My poor old tummy makes a horrible sound
I think im going to treat it to a night on the town.

   Refrain (2 1/2 times)
