WHAT do singers Andy Williams, Dean Martin and Tony Christie have in common?

Today, they have been united by football as their famous tunes are behind the entries in The Evening Star's bid to find a chant for Ipswich Town's new manager Jim Magilton.

Earlier this week, we launched a challenge for Blues fans to come up with a fresh chant to back Magilton in his bid for promotion to the Premiership.

Some of the latest entries (see below) suggest lyrics to the favourite tunes of You're Just too Good to be True, That's Amore and Is This the way to Amarillo?

We are looking for cheeky tunes, passionate chants and inspired lyrics that can get Portman Road rocking this season.

The best efforts will be printed in the Star to give fans some ideas for the opening game on Saturday, August 5, at home against Crystal Palace.

Tony Iannelli,

Sung to the chorus tune of Andy Williams' You're Just too Good to be True.

We have a new boss, and it is super Jim...

He has the passion, to make the players win...

Whenever Ipswich score...

Hear the tractor boys roar...

(Repeat)

Sung to the tune of Dean Martin`s That`s Amore.

He is full of wise cracks,

He will give us his max... Jim Magilton, Jim Magilton.

Whenever Town go and score,

You`ll have to tie him to floor... Jim Magilton, Jim Magilton.

He even skipped the team,

One of the best we have seen - what a player...

And when the Town go and win,

We will all start to sing, Jim Magilton...

Pat Wootton

Keep right on to the Premiership

Keep on scoring the goals.

Though the way is tough

Don't be yellow card rough

Just keep scoring the goals.

Craig Evans

Sung to the tune of Tony Christie's Is This the Way to Amarillo?

This is the way to the Prem-e-err..

Naylor, Garvan, Nicky Forster..

The Promised Land is like the Hilton..

We'll be there with Jim Magilton

Sung to the tune of the former Finidi George and Matteo Sereni songs

Magilton..wo-a'ho..Magilton..Wo-a'ho

He is our number one.

Got Naarwich on the run.

Magilton..wo-a'ho..Magilton..Wo-a'ho

We've found our long lost son.

We've only just begun.

Magilton..w-oa'ho.
