The Lyrics

Another parody to make you hungry
The bakers served some food at the deli
There was a big huge lengthy line
In the middle right there I saw Billy
Waiting to go and have a bite
And when it his turn to order
He ordered a big sandwich
From where I stood, I heard what he ordered
And then he got it right away

Billy ordered a gyro, and also roast beef on rye
Billy ordered a gyro, no it did not have a spice
And after he finished it up, he then ordered more gyro-o-os
Billy ordered a gyro, with salami

The bakers then wrapped up his sandwich
The gyro was wrapped all around
Then every bite was in a wrapping
I bet he will son here get round
Then he ate every single bite up
To sign a check he used a pen
And Billy decided to open a restraunt
That sells each and every bread
For bread
Billy ordered a gyro, and also roast beef on rye
Billy ordered a gyro, no it did not have a spice
And after he finished it up, he then ordered more gyro-o-os
Billy ordered a gyro, with salami

I heard his restraunt got some good reviews
After it was open for one day
Billy served some rye and some gyros
And roast beef with salami
The customers would eat away

Cheeborgay, Cheeborgay, Cheeborgay, no Pepsi, Coke. Coke, coke, coke, chip, chip, chip, $5.55.

Just love those Greek Gyros. I frequent a Greek hole in the wall restaurant for lunch now and then called John the Greek's. If you ask for a Pepsi he sounds just like, SNL when he says "No Pepsi, Coke! Great parody Jack.

you know the saying: "never read a food parody on an empty stomach. It makes you automatically give them 5s." I just ate. You get 5s anyway!

I am still laughing because I thought you meant gyro as in gyroscope! I couldn't work out how you could make a song of that!

Gyro (pronounced "yeero," at least the way *I* pronounce it) is an excellent sub for hero. Which makes for an excellent title. Like C4P, I wish I woulda thought of it.
