Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive

In the style of

Johnny Mercer

Lyrics

gather 'round me
everybody
gather 'round me
while i preach some

feel a sermon
comin' on me
the topic will be sin
and that's what
i'm ag'in

if ya wanna
hear my story
then settle back
and just sit tight
while i start reviewin'
the attitude
of doin' right

you got to accentuate
the positive
eliminate the negative
and latch on to
the affirmative
don't mess with
mr. in-between

you got to
spread joy
up to the maximum
bring gloom down
to the minimum

have faith or
pandemonium
liable to walk upon
the scene

to illustrate
my lesson mark
jonah and the whale
noah and the ark
what did they do
just when everything
looked so dark

man they said
we better accentuate
the positive
eliminate the negative
and latch on to
the affirmative
don't mess with
mr. in-between

no
don't mess with
mr. in-between

we said spread joy
ooh
what he said
spread joy

you got to accentuate
the positive
eliminate the negative
and latch on to
the affirmative
don't mess with
mr. in-between

no
don't mess with
mr. in-between
