A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air,
The monkey thought that ev'rything was on the square.
The buzzard tried to throw the money off of his back,
But the monkey grabbed his neck and said, "Now listen, Jack.

(Refrain:)

"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 divin', what's the use in drivin'?
Straighten up and fly right, -
Cool down, Papa, don't you blow your top."

(Bridge:)

The buzzard told the monkey, "You are chokin' me;
Release your holt and I will set you free."
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye,
And said, "Your story's so touchin' it sounds just like a lie."

(Repeat Refrain)
