Perry Como - "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
Don't mess with Mister in-between!

You gotta spread joy up to the maximum,
Bring gloom down to the minimum,
An' have faith ( Amen! )
Or pandemonium's
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
Don't mess with Mister in-between!
No, don't 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
Don't mess with Mister in-between!
No, don't mess with Mister in-between!
No, don't you mess with Mister in-between!
No, don't mess with Mister in-between!
