As a life-long fan of The Beatles I was excited to learn of The Rutles in the early 80s when I was in high school.

Firehouse Subs

One of my favorite songs of The Rutles was a parody called “Cheese and Onions.” For those of you who are Lennon fans, you’ll get the significance of the #8 Dream, he did a song #9 Dream, (another of my favorites) but my favorite sandwich at Firehouse Subs is the #8.

This whole post stems from an online argument I’m having with Firehouse Subs because they’ve stopped carrying Lay’s sour cream and onion potato chips. Yes, silly, I know, but sometimes in life you have to take a stand.

So, without having time to rush into a studio this morning, I’ve included the original video here, but re-wrote the lyrics just for my friends in Jacksonville, FL who need to hear this very important message. Please, play the video and read the new lyrics, imagining Lennon or The Rutles singing them to you…

Sour Cream And Onion


From the Soundtrack LP “#8 Dream, the Firehouse Sub Sandwich” 7/3/2014
Lead Vocal: Bago Chips

I have always wished Firehouse Subs would bring back
Sour cream and onion.

I have always thought
that taking them away was unkind
Sour cream and onion.

Do I have to spell it out?

If you bring em back now
I’ll come back somehow
And eat at your store
Several times more…

Got a device
For everything nice
Please think about this twice
at least once more….
(repeats, fades)


Heck, even the Onion recognizes the importance of sour cream and onion chips.
