Just tell them you're not looking for a promotion, try and keep that job, and the next one you find get out of there because you know now that you work harder than you should and deserve better pay.
Fired because over qualified? Take it as a positive point and apply to somewhere better. Though losing an existing job does suck.
Ask them for a great recommendation letter. That might help in finding a new job.
If you can get your separation paperwork with that written on them, that's as good as a recommendation IMO. (worked for me once) "Do you have any recommendations?" "well my old boss fired me for being too good at my job." *hands over paperwork to prove it* "... He actually wrote that on here? Wow."
