Buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air
But the monkey turned around and said, 'Hey listen Jack! '
Monkey thought that everything on the square
Buzzard tried to throw the monkey off of his back
Straighten up and fly right

Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down bubba don't you blow your top
Ain't no use in jiving
Straighten up and fly right

Cool down bubba don't you blow your top
Well the buzzard told the monkey you are choking me
What's the use of diving
Monkey looked the buzzard dead in the eye and said
'Your story is so touching, but it sounds just like a lie! '
Release your hold and I will set you free

Straighten up and stay right
So straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down bubba don't you blow your top
