Song lyrics:

(feat. Grand Puba & Sadat X)

(Some guy talking)
Ya know, you give a man a reason for living
Not to mention, you take my paycheck
Now baby, but I give it to you because I love you
Ya know cuz the things that I feel so proud about
The things that you do
Ya know, like runnin my car into telephone poles
Plus (?) I didnt get mad did I?
Y-Y-ymember, member when
W-W-When I told you to take my clothes to the cleaners
and on the way out
My very best pinstripe caught a nail
I didnt get mad
I was proud because you thought, enough of your man
To be in such a hurry
It made me feel grand, yes it did
Uuh I need you, I just need you

(Verse 1)
You know I was your bread, your butter
And I aint talkin bout dat bread I f**ed up on you
Cause in my head man I swore I lucked up
Wasnt countin all the butter I spreaded on you
So true now, why would I play you b**h I made you
Im not talkin bout the things dat I gave you
Clothes wit the labels, I brought you round Hov and da label
Spring water while holdin youre age koo
Now I aint tryin to degrade you
But you was a lost little girl in your world, boo I saved you
Ya pop owe me a favor, I basically raised you
From squada to Bentley-whippin
Aint have to watch Cribs to see how I was livin
Me, so blinded aint see the Robin Givens in you
Huh, shoulda seen the Ginger in you
Tried to off Beans like raw steam? Go figure
Youu take my dough, spend wit the next n***a you crazy b**h?

(Chorus #1)
And dis was the one I trusted
Who would ever think she would spread like mustard?
b**h I was your bread and butter
You shoulda tucked dat bread and butter
Ya know what?... Dis sh** funny to me
It aint nuttin but money to me
You lookin homely to me
But I was your bread and butter
b**h shoulda tucked dat bread and butter
Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm

(Verse 2)
You got the whole town laughin at me, silly he

Silly to see got me feelin silly like Denise like
Oh what could it be in you, I see
N dis young P-Y-T
She got me L-O-V, E-T-K-Od
Uh, like Teddy P. whatever she say goes
But Im, ready to (Turn Off The Lights)
Close the door, on my pretty young mi amore
Now peep game wit em, need, I, more
Gimme dat, E thy or
No Beanie Mac dont play dat crap wit these whores
She want me missin her (in my room) like the OJs homes
But Im on to my zone like O.J. Jones
Beano brown, cancel dis b**h, Ill buy another one
Its my world you lil squirrel tryna get a nut b**h
Do you- what b**h? Lil smut b**h
Got youre name ringin, spreadin like mustard
And Im supposed to trust it after he touched it?

(Chorus #2)
I told dat a** (slow down) like Puba
Now youre days are gray like the 4 pound Ruga
Bread and Butter, see I was your bread and butter
Flaaay baby ya hips is gettin big
Now you gettin thin you dont care about your whip
Cuz I was your bread and butter
Shoulda tucked dat bread and butter
Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm

(Bridge being sung)
So proud, of you.. aye-ah
I gotta say it loud, yes I do, ayeah (yeah yeah)
When you do (do) What you do (do)
How do you do, What you do
Aw, shame on you
I need you (oh oh)
Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm Mm

(Verse 3 - Grand Puba)
Now you know I was your bread and butter
You had a shot to be my baby mother
Aint no sorry I aint Ruben Studdard
I cant apologize, its multi-platnimum time
Takin all my sh** and sendin you back to your moms cryin
So dont cry baby dry, ya eyes
You tried to get all greasy like you super-size fries
So, pack ya sh**
Leave the whip
Its been nice but listen ma I gotta defrost ya ice
Dats rite

(Chorus #2)

Bread and Butter (4x)

(Mm Mm said repeatedly til fade to end)
