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 fly right
Straighten up and fly right
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 down bubba don't you blow your top

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

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

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

Fly right
