Is this the way to Amarillo?

This video became widely popular (in the UK) after some British soldiers in Iraq lip-synched it. The song itself has been popular there for decades. Even though the town mentioned is in the States, most people here have never heard it. (Amarillo, Texas got placed in the song because it was the one town the songwriters could think of that rhymed with "pillow.") There are numerous versions on youtube. Be warned: the song is mildly addictive, though not necessarily in a bad way.
