The Lyrics

Ever have a craving for a specific food? Make sure you're careful when searching it out. Original Song
I worked so hard all day
Skipped lunch, I’m so hungry!
Just need to stuff my face
I don’t want to cook today

Not a burger man
Don’t want Mexican
Chinese just won’t do it
Think I want Greek, that sounds great!

French fries just leave me bored
Don’t want salad, beans or corn
(Need food better than Subway)
I know what my dream meal is
Need to eat some lamb that’s carved from a spit

I need a gyro to eat right now
I need a gyro, (feed me now!)
I need a gyro, I might need nine
A gyro will fill me, just feels right

Been on my mind all day
There ain’t no other way
Cure all these hunger pains
(They just will not go away!)

Do I want beef or lamb?
In pita in my hand
(I’ve also seen salmon!)
Don’t know what I’ll choose today

Know what I’m looking for
Find a restaurant here in town
(Need to find one right away)
I need to get my fill
Tomato, onions, think I’ll order twelve!

I need a gyro, I need one now!
I need a gyro (I’ll leave town)
To find a gyro to save my night
I’ll even fly to Greece, book my flight!

A single gyro will make my night
Don’t want to settle for some fries
Help me ease my mind
Help me save this night!

Been driving ‘round town for miles
Then in the distance, I find
A small Greek restaurant, I smile
“Gyro’s for $3.99!”

My mouth is salivating
I need some sweet tzatziki
I need a gyro, give me a gyro!
Save one for me!

It’s like under a spotlight
This precious has caught my eye
I speed up, run a red light
Nothing will ruin this night

A gyro I will taste, but I see lights
The police right behind me, F my life!

“I need a gyro!” I’m screaming now
Won’t get a gyro, should have slowed down
In my Camaro, sped toward the light
I was going 90 in 25!

(Give me a gyro!)
Harold and Kumar just might
They’ll relate, White Castle, right!?

(I need a gyro)
I need a pita with meat
I wound up in the pokey!
Won’t get a gyro

I need a gyro
That gyro went and cost me six months time!

Something about Skillet makes people hungry. You'll do jail time to stop the hunger, Agrimorfee's getting high and munching on everything in sight... Gotta say these parodies are making me hungry! A gyro does sound really good right now and great story telling here instead of just making this an average food parody.

Yummy! I was craving more funny lines but the story buildup to the end was worth wait. Congrats on the use of tzitiziki in a parody. See my "At The Greek Taverna" for another fun gyros feast! http://www.amiright.com/parody/70s/davidbowie29.shtml

It does work quite well, I mean Skillet as Matthias said, food related. The funny thing is that I almost forgot that it's a Skillet parody and thought it was a parody of other "Hero" for a bit. Not really much of a gyro guy myself but it depends on the mood. 555 calories to burn right now.

(Artistry) Fantastic parody for a foodstuff I've only heard about once before and otherwise know nothing about! 555!
