Straighten Up And Fly Right Lyrics

Straighten Up And Fly Right by Dianne Reeves  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Straighten Up And Fly Right A buzzard took the 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're chokin' me
Release your hold and I'll set you free"
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye and said
"You know your story's touching but it sounds like a lie"

Ohh, straighten up and fly right
Straighten up and stay right
Straighten up and fly right
Cool down, Papa, cool down, Papa
Papa, don't you blow your top
