Buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air
Monkey thought that everything was on the square
Buzzard tried to throw the monkey off of his back
But the monkey turned around and said, "Hey, listen Jack"

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

"Ain't no use in jiving, what's the use of diving?
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, bubba, don't you blow your top"

Well, 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"

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
"Story is so touching but it sounds just like a lie"

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