You've got to accentuate the positive eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative don't mess with Mister In-Between
You've got to spread joy up to the maximum bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium's liable to walk upon the scene
To illustrate my last remark Jonah in the whale Noah in the ark
What did they do just when everything looked so dark
You've got to accentuate the positive eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative don't mess with Mister In-Between
[ guitar ]
To illustrate my last remark...
I said you've got to accentuate...
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

    Positive thinking and programming, 1940-50's style.
    Also karma, sowing & reaping, what you see is what you get, later.
    Look to the solution, not at the 'problem/difficulty'.
