Straighten Up And Fly Right Lyrics

A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air
The monkey thought that everything was on the square
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off his back
The monkey grabbed his neck and said, "Now listen, Jack"

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top
Ain't no use in diving (Ain't no use, no no)
What's the use in jiving? (What's the use in jiving?)
Straighten up and fly right (Straighten up, yeah)
Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top

The buzzard told the monkey you are choking me
Release your hold and I will set you free
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye and said
"Your story's so touching, but it sounds just like a lie"

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top
To do to do to do do do Ohh, The buzzard told the monkey you are choking me
Release your hold and I will set you free
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye and said
"Your story's so touching, but it sounds just like- oh"

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top
To do to do to do do do do, do do do
Oh oh oh
Da da, da da, da da, da da

Straighten up and fly right (Straighten up, wop wop)
Straighten up and stay right (Oh, stay right)
Straighten up and fly right (Oh oh, yeah yeah)
Cool down, papa
Don't you blow
Your top
Fly right
