Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister in-between
Verse 2
You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene
Verse 3
To illustrate his last remark
Jonah in the whale, noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark
Verse 4
Man, they said we better, accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister in-between
No, do not mess with mister in-between
Do you hear me?
Verse 5
Oh, listen to me children and-a you will hear
About the elininatin' of the negative
And the accent on the positive
And gather 'round me children if you're willin'
And sit tight while I start reviewin'
The attitude of doin' right
Verse 6
You've gotta accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister in-between
Verse 7
You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom, down to the minimum
Otherwise pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene
Verse 8
To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, noah in the ark
What did they say
Say when everything looked so dark
Verse 9
Man, they said we better accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister in-between
No, don't mess with mister in-between
