Straighten Up and Fly 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 his back.
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 
Papa 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 papa don't you blow your top.

The Buzzard told the monkey you are choking me.
Release your hope and I will set you free.
Monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye.
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.
(Instrument solo)
Fly right.
