Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative
Accentuate the positive, an' latch on

You gotta accentuate the positive
Eliminate 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, amen

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 accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative an' latch on
To the affirmative, don't mess with Mister In Between
No, don't you 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 accentuate the positive
Eliminate 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"
