straighten up and fly right lyrics – diana krall

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
