Picture the Partridge Family, only cool, actually playing their own instruments, inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughn, George Thorogood and Jesus Christ, writing and playing their own songs, graduates from the School of Rock, and led by a Jack Black type (who also happens to be their father).

Biography

On a dark and stormy December night, 2004, three brave children decided to forgo the comfort provided by their television set and give it away to make room for a drum kit for their youngest brother. Their father, still delirious from a divorce, saw this as an opportunity to conduct a grand experiment in family bonding dynamics. From this macabre scene was born that unstoppable rock’n roll force: Peanut Butter & Honey Toast!

Drawing on his roots in classic rock'n roll, their father started working with them, creating with them, writing music with them, until as a family they turned into the sound machine they are today.

Throughout their corner of Washington people have rocked to their sound. From Hell’s Kitchen, to the World Famous Bob’s Java Jive; from Kelly's Cafe to The Old Fire House; from benefit shows on the Peninsula to grand opening celebrations, their fans have all said one thing: “You guys are fun!”

Now this group is ready to hit the road and share what Peanut Butter & Honey Toast is really all about, rock'n roll with a side order of fun. Order up!

Lyrics

Purple Spandex

Written By: Peanut Butter & Honey Toast

We’re Peanut Butter & Honey Toast
Tonight we’re gonna be your Rock n’ Roll host
We’ve got the rhythm and we’ve got the sound
We’ll turn this place upside down
We’ll sing our rock and we’ll sing about God
But we won’t wear no purple spandex!

We’ve got a drummer with light blonde hair
He hates this song, but we don’t care
When he smiles his dimples shine
I’m quite proud of this child o’ mine
He’ll wear blue jeans, he’ll wear shorts,
But he won’t wear no purple spandex!

Listen to that gal on the saxophone,
She’s got blues pourin’ out of her soul
Heads up boys, I know she’s fine,
But I’m her dad and I’ll smack you blind
She’ll wear t-shirts of every kind,
But she won’t wear no purple spandex!

Wolfy’s here to crank out a tune
He’s got the rhythm, he’s got the groove
He’s way wicked with his flying-v,
We put him out front for the girls to see
He’s got class and he’s got style,
But he won’t wear no purple spandex!

On bass and vocal yeah I’m their Dad
Most folks might think that we are mad
As a family we like to play
And we are having fun every day
We’re Peanut Butter & Honey Toast
And we don’t wear no purple spandex

Stepped in a Puddle of Love

Written By: Peanut Butter & Honey Toast

If yer a feller better listen to me
‘Cause this here story is what happened to me
I was 14 and my life was all right
And then it went into a downward slide

In the classroom I was king of the school
Everybody there knew I was cool
Then she walked in and she sat next me
How was I to know what she would do to me?

Chorus
I was in to school
I was tight with my friends
My life was really lookin’ alright

How was I to know
When she was lookin at me
That I’d become stupefied

Because I hopped down
Turned around
And stepped in a puddle of love.

Well me and my friends you know we, had our fun
We’d ding dong ditch a house and then run
my pockets were full so I was always prepared
To tease the little girls and have them running scared

Now you’ll see me carrying her books like a fool
Or playing the hang up game on the phone after school
I’m with her now every moment I’m free
Tell me dear Lord oh what has happened to me?

Chorus

I was cool
I’m a fool
Weak in the knees
Every time I hear that girl whispering please

Chorus

You know I hopped down
Turned around
Stepped in a puddle of love

Armor of God

Written By: Peanut Butter & Honey Toast

I wear the armor of God
I wear it day and all the night
And tall I will stand against evil

I wrap my waist with Your truth
Tight as a belt it is worn
Your righteousness protects my heart

(Chorus) Jesus is my Lord
Jesus is my Savior
Conqueror, Protector
Jesus I give you my life!

The soles of my feet you have prepared
Into the sinful world I walk
Equipped with your Gospel of peace

You’ve given me the shield of faith
Always I keep it out before me
And quench the wicked’s fiery darts

Chorus

Salvation is wrapped about my head
With the sword of the Spirit in my hand
For I carry the Word of Holy God!

Chorus

Jesus I trust you with my life!

Cheezy Friez

Written By: Peanut Butter & Honey Toast

Pulled up to the drive through
And what did I see
A whole lot of choices were staring at me
Don’t want no burgers
Don’t want no fish
And when I eat that chicken you know I get an itch

I want my cheezy friez

C’mon now and give me my cheezy friez

Hurry up and give me my cheezy friez

Welcome to McBurgerbox, may I take your order please?

I want my cheezy friez
Give me my cheezy friez
C’mon now and give me my cheezy friez

Don’t sprinkle on onions
Don’t drown ‘em in chili
Keep away the ketchup ‘cause it gives me the willies
Crispy fried taters
In bubblin’ cheeze
I need them right I’m getting weak in the knees

I want my cheezy friez
I want my cheezy friez
C’mon now and give me my cheezy friez
I want my cheezy friez
I want my cheezy friez
Hurry up and give me my cheezy friez

Ok, so that is one double cheese burger and a large fry, did you want a soda with that?

I want my cheezy friez

Please oh won’t you give me my cheezy friez?

Don’t want no burgers
Don’t want no fish
And when I eat that chicken you know I get an itch
French fried potatoes
Covered with melted cheese
Don’t you understand lady now give them to me
