Straighten Up And Fly Right

( Nat King Cole and Irving Mills)

	  Intro: A F#m F#m7 Bm5-/7 E7/13 E7/13- Bm5-/7 E9 E7/13 E7/13-  

   A              A7                     D                    F7 
A buzzard took a monkey for a ride in the air 
     A                   F#                  F#m7       F7         E7 
The monkey thought that ev'rything was on the square 
     A                A7                               D                  F7 
The buzzard tried to throw the monkey off of his back 
         A                       F#m               F#m7      Bm5-/7      E9 
But the monkey grabbed his neck and said, "Now listen, Jack 
A6                D6                    A6              Bm5-/7     E9  
"Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and fly right  
  A6               D6                 A6                                            F9       E9 
Straighten up and fly right, cool down, Papa, don't you blow your top 
 A6              D6               A6                Bm5-/7 
Ain't no use in divin', what's the use in drivin' 
  A6             D6                    A6                F#7M             E9   E7    A6 
Straighten up and fly right, cool down, Papa, don't you blow your top" 
    C#7                   
The buzzard told the monkey, "You are chokin' me 
   F#7                       F#9      G9   F#9 
Release your holt and I will set you free" 
    B9                              
The monkey looked the buzzard right dead in the eye 
     B7          E9                         Bm5-/7          F9         E9 
And said, "Your story's so touchin' it sounds just like a lie" 
A6                D6                    A6              Bm5-/7     E9  
"Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and fly right  
  A6               D6                 A6                                            F9       E9 
Straighten up and fly right, cool down, Papa, don't you blow your top 
 A6              D6               A6                Bm5-/7 
Ain't no use in divin', what's the use in drivin' 

Interlude: A A7 D F7 A F#  F#m7 F7  E7 A A7 D F7 A F#m  F#m7 Bm5-/7 E9  A6 D6 A6 Bm5-/7 E9 A6 D6 A6 F9  E9 A6 D6 A6  
                Bm5-/7 A6 D6 A6 F#7 E9 E7 A6 C#7 F#7 F#9 G9 F#9 B9 B7 E9 Bm5-/7 F9 E9 

A6                D6                    A6              Bm5-/7     E9  
"Straighten up and fly right, straighten up and fly right  
  A6             D6                    A6                F#7M             E9   E7    A6 
Straighten up and fly right, cool down, Papa, don't you blow your top"
