Nnenna Freelon – Straighten Up And Fly Right lyrics

You know
If you're gonna fly
You need to fly right
Straighten up, you better fly, straighten up

Fly but straighten up and stay right
Fly but straighten up and stay right
Stay right

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 of his back
But the monkey grabbed his neck and said, "Now, listen Jack"

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Oh, cool down bubba, don't you blow your top

Ain't no use in diving
What's the use of jiving?
Straighten up and fly right
Cool, cool down bubba, don't you blow your top

The buzzard told the monkey, “You are choking me
Release your hold and I'll set you free”
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in his eyes
He said, "Your story's so touching, sounds like a lie"

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up, straighten up and fly right
Cool down bubba, your top

Cool down, cool down, cool down
Bubba, don't you blow your top

The buzzard told the monkey, “You are choking me
Release your hold and I'll set you free”
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in his eyes
He said, "Your story's so touching, it sounds like a lie"

Straighten up bubba
Keep it cool, keep it cool
Fly right bubba

Oh, straighten up bubba
Oh, won't you please stay right?
Keep it cool
Fly away bubba

Straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up, straighten up and fly right
Cool down bubba, blow your top

Ain't no use in diving
What's the use [Incomprehensible] jiving?
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down bubba, don't you blow your top
