Straighten Up And Fly Right

Song Author Nat King Cole og Irving Mills Lyrics by: Nat King Cole og Irving Mills Performer: Nat King Cole Submitted by: Anonymous
A b[A]uzzard took a [A7]monkey for a r[D]ide in the a[F7]ir,   
The m[A]onkey thought that [F#]ev' - ry - [F#m7]thing was [F7]on the [E7]square.
The b[A]uzzard tried to t[A7]hrow the monkey [D]off of his [F7]back,
But the m[A]onkey grabbed his [F#m]neck and s[F#m7]aid, "Now [Bm7-5]list - en, J[E9]ack.   

"[A6]Straighten up and [D6]fly right,
S[A6]traighten up and[Bm7-5] fly r      [E9]ight,
S[A6]traighten up and [D6]fly right, --
[A6]Cool down, Papa, don't you b[F9]low your [E9]top.   
A[A6]in't no use in d[D6]ivin', [A6]what's the use in [Bm7-5]drivin'?
St[A6]raighten up and[D6] fly right, --
[A6]Cool down, [F#m]Papa, don't you [E9]blow [E7]your t[A6]op."   

The [C#7]buzzard told the monkey, "You are chokin' me;
Rel[F#7]ease your holt and I will [F#9]set you f[G9]ree."[F#9]    
The [B9]monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye,
And s[B7]aid, "Your s[E9]tory's so touchin' it [Bm7-5]sounds just [F9]like a l[E9]ie."   

"[A6]Straighten up and [D6]fly right,
S[A6]traighten up and[Bm7-5] fly r      [E9]ight,
S[A6]traighten up and [D6]fly right, --
[A6]Cool down, Papa, don't you b[F9]low your [E9]top.   
A[A6]in't no use in d[D6]ivin', [A6]what's the use in [Bm7-5]drivin'?
St[A6]raighten up and[D6] fly right, --
[A6]Cool down, [F#m]Papa, don't you [E9]blow [E7]your t[A6]op."   

A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air,
The monkey thought that ev' - ry - thing was on the square.
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off of his back,
But the monkey grabbed his neck and said, "Now [Bm7-5]list - en, Jack.

"Straighten up and fly right,
Straighten up and[Bm7-5] fly 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 [Bm7-5]drivin'?
Straighten up and fly right, --
Cool down, Papa, don't you blow your top."

The buzzard told the monkey, "You are chokin' me;
Release your holt and I will set you free."
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye,
And said, "Your story's so touchin' it [Bm7-5]sounds just like a lie."

"Straighten up and fly right,
Straighten up and[Bm7-5] fly 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 [Bm7-5]drivin'?
Straighten up and fly right, --
Cool down, Papa, don't you blow your top."
