DeJohn Sisters – Straighten Up & Fly Right lyrics

Children, we all went the zoo yesterday
Now what did we all learn there
Beatrice (uh)

A buzzard took a monkey for
A ride in the air (Beatrice)
The monkey thought that everything
Was on the square (Beatrice)

The buzzard tried to throw
The monkey off his back
But the monkey grabbed his neck
And said, now listen, Jack

Straighten up and fly right (class)
Straighten up and fly right (class)
Straighten up and fly right (class)
Cool down, teacher
Don't you flip your wig

What's the use of diving
What's the use of diving
(Bertha) cool down, teacher
Don't you flip your wig

The buzzard told the monkey
You're choking me
Release your hold
And I'll set you free

The monkey looked the buzzard
Right dead in the eye and said
Your story's so touching
It sounds like a lie, lie, lie, lie, lie

Straighten up and fly right (class)
Straighten up and stay right (class)
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, teacher
Don't you flip your wig

Oh, my, the class will have to come to order
Oh, what's happened to my nice class
Class, you'll have to come to order
(Come on, teacher, you try one) me

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
Oh, my, I think I really flipped my wig

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Ooh, ha, teacher really flipped her wig

Oh, my, class dismissed
Class dismissed, oh, my

Ooo-ee-oo-ah-ah
Ting tang walla walla wing wang
