The Lyrics

It's been a whole week since I smelled
The grease of cooking bacon
My wife's got me on this crazy diet
She's gone all vegetarian
No more steak or pork chops they're all on the outs
But after two weeks I've had enough of these awful Brussels sprouts

I need a gyro
I'm holding out for a gyro for tomorrow night
It's gotta have meat and it's gotta have cheese
And it's gotta have mayo just right
I need a gyro
Better than that alfalfa I had last night
It's gotta be moist
and it's gotta be tough
And it's gotta be char broiled just right

Somewhere around lunchtime
In my wildest fantasy
There exists a nice break from another plate of peas
There's a sandwich with toppings and a large amount of meat
It'll take a super sub to knock me off my feet

I need a gyro
I'm holding out for a gyro for tomorrow night
It's gotta have meat and it's gotta have cheese
And it's gotta have mayo just right
I need a gyro
Better than that alfalfa I had last night
It's gotta be moist
and it's gotta be tough
And it's gotta be char broiled just right

In the bottom drawer of my refrigerator
Where there's provolone and cold cuts
Here's a chance for me to escape
From this tofu that drives me nuts

Slap it on and pour it on
The mustard or I'll have it plain
Screw low cal eating I want cholesterol
Running through my veins

I need a gyro
I'm holding out for a gyro for tomorrow night
It's gotta have meat and it's gotta have cheese
And it's gotta have mayo just right
I need a gyro
Better than that alfalfa I had last night
It's gotta be moist
and it's gotta be tough
And it's gotta be char broiled just right

the first three letters in "Diet" spell "Die" which is what it feels like the starvation will make one do! 5's
