Lyr Req: Bread and Margarine (Matt McGinn)

I am looking for the lyrics of a 1960's folk song written by Matt McGinn and sung by him and Paddie Bell/ the Corries Folk Trio between 1964 and 1969. It was possibly recorded by Paddie Bell.
It was called Bread and Margarine.
It went something like:
We all live on bread and margarine.... I think it was maybe to the tune of Yellow Submarine.
Any help would be much appreciated!

According to the catalog of the Broadside Collection at the University of North Carolina, the title is I'LL BE LIVING ON BREAD AND MARGARINE. The collection contains a tape of Matt McGinn singing it in 1966.
