Linda Ronstadt - Straighten Up and Fly Right

written by Nat King Cole and Irving Mills

The 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 fly right

Straighten up and fly right

Cool down papa don't you blow your top

Ain't no use in jivin'

What's the use in divin'

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 your story's touching but it sounds like a lie

Straighten up and fly right

Straighten up and do right

Straighten up and fly right

Cool down papa don't you blow your top

Straighten up and fly right

Straighten up and do right

Straighten up and fly right

Cool down papa don't you blow your top

Fly right
