The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Scenery? What scenery?

When Bobby Troup was getting his kicks on Route 66, he noted that "Oklahoma City is mighty pretty."

He wouldn't have thought so if he'd had to take I-35 or 40.

I thought it was "oh, so pretty"? Different version?

Well, this is the way Bobby sang it. Hundreds of folks, up to (or down to) and including the Rolling Stones, have recorded this song, and it's reasonable to assume variations were wrought upon the theme.
