Straighten Up and Fly Right (Nat King Cole)

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 stay right Straighten up and fly right Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top. Ain't no use in divin', What's the use in jivin'? Straighten up and fly right Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top. The buzzard told the monkey, You are chokin' 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, 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. Straighten up and fly right Straighten up and stay right Straighten up and fly right Cool down, papa, don't you blow your top. Ain't no use in divin' Ain't no good in jivin' Straighten up and fly right Cool down, papa, don't you blow - your - top. Fly right!
