The Lyrics

The food, of course!
Where have all the Med foods gone
Flat bread and tzatziki sauce?
Meat that's cooked up vertically
Usually pork, but Mutton at extra cost?
Need a Greek restaurant that will meet my needs
Fast food is growing old, something unusual I wanna eat

I need a gyro
I'm holding out for a gyro when the timing is right
I prefer chicken
Tomatoes, onions in there tightly packed
And it's gotta be fresh before I buy
I need a gyro
I'm holding out for a gyro that's made just right
From a Greek or a Jew
And I need it real soon
Don't forget oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parsley that's freshly dried!

Ethnic foods are alright
With my family
But it's a tossup between Chinese
And all the crap from Italy
Sometimes it's BK, other times KFC
But I like Mediterranean and so it's gotta be real Greek!


Gyros are sandwiches I love
Chicken, but sometimes beef
Stuff some veggies deep in there
And then watch me feed the beast

Why I like it, can't explain
I can't get enough
At least it's better than the steaks
My brothers eat with blood!
