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 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
Don't mess with mister in-between!
No, don't mess with mister in-between!

(to illustrate
His last remark

An 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!

    It has the wonderful message "Optimism"! I love it, always look for the positive, the bright light (it really is shining we just have to look for it sometimes), don't give place to negativity. It will surely show it's ugly head. That is when we smile, and march on to the tune of "Man, You've got to, Accentuate the positive, Eliminate the negative, An, Latch on to the Affirmative, Don't mess with mister in- between!"
