Words and music by Nat King Cole and Irving Mills; American Academy of Music, Mills Music, ASCAP

The buzzard took the monkey for a ride in the air

The monkey thought that everything was on a square

The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off 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

Cool down pappa don't you blow your top

Ain't no use in divin,' what's the use of jivin'

Straighten up and fly right

Cool down pappa don't you blow your top

The buzzard told the monkey you are chokin me

Release your hold and I will set you free

The monkey looked the buzzert right dead in the eye

And said "Your story's so touching but it sounds like a lie"

Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and stay right

Straighten up and fly right

Cool down pappa don't you blow your top

Musical Interlude

Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and stay right

Straighten up and fly right

Cool down pappa don't you blow your top

Ain't no use in divin,' what's the use of jivin'

You better straighten up and fly right

Cool down pappa don't you blow your top

Fly right
