The Lyrics

Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube. This is a Cher cover of a Kiss song.
A world without gyros
Would be a son of a... gun
There ain't no Greek-y sandwich fun
Without gyros

And a world without gyros
Is just a bunch of tasteless dross
Without a good tzatziki sauce
We might as well be eating moss

So I order up a pita
With tomato, onion too
And a giant heap of myst'ry meat
In the heart of my gyro

I take mine to extremes
Adding spuds and sour cream
And a world without gyros
Would be a horrible thing
Like a pong without a ping
Or like Wayne without his "schwing!"*

And the gods up on Olympus
Want some gyros of their own
Ambrosia's great, but gyros sate

When I'm looking for a gyro
Then I use a gyro-scope
To help me spy Aegean pie
(is it lamb? is it Spam?)

It's a case of gyro worship
And I watch it on the spit
Go 'round and 'round til it is browned
(cone of meat can't be beat)

Can I get 'em all delivered
Via gyro-copter now
Just fly 'em here to bring me cheer
(And don't stop the air drop)

And I'm holding out for (a) gyro**
Just like Bonnie Tyler did
She likes to eat that spicy meat
(don't be meek, just go Greek)

* You do remember "Wayne's World", right? It hasn't been that long since it was in the theatres...let's premiered Egad.

** You do remember Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For A Hero", right? It hasn't been that long since it was on the charts...let's Gadzooks.

So if Batman ordered one would it be a super-gyro? Delicious parody Rex!

What gyro has over a hero is a flat bread, gotta love pitas. Nice use of world play of the original title.

(Artistry) Note to self: try Greek food sometime. It's apparently fantastic, much like this parody, in fact. 555 on the house!

(Artistry) Love gyros and I shudder to think about a world without them! Love the pun, good work!
