(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
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 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!
