Accentuate The Positive lyrics

( ac-cent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
Ac-cent-thu-ate the positive, an latch on! )

You gotta accent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
An latch on
To the affirmative
Dont mess with mister in-between!

You gotta spread joy up to the maximum,
Bring gloom down to the minimum,
An have faith ( amen! )
Or pandemoniums
Liable to walk upon the scene!

To illustrate
My last remark
Jonah in the whale!
Noah in the arc!
An what did they do ( what did they do? )
Just when everything looked so dark?

( what did they, what did they, what did they do? )

Man! they said
You better accent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
An latch on
To the affirmative
Dont mess with mister in-between!
No, dont mess with mister in-between!

( to illustrate
His last remark
Jonah in the whale!
Noah in the arc! )
An what did they do
( what did they do?
Just when everything looked so dark?
What did they do, what did they do? )

Man! they said
You better accent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
An latch on
To the affirmative
Dont mess with mister in-between!
No, dont mess with mister in-between!
No, dont you mess with mister in-between!
No, dont mess with mister in-between!
