Accentuate the Positive

on April 19, 2013

Accentuate the Positive
performed by Ella Fitzgerald

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 agin’
If you wanna hear my story
Then settle back and just sit tight
While I start reviewin’
The attitude on doin’… … … RIGHT!
You’ve got to accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
But don’t mess with mister inbetween
You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
have faith, a pandemonium
Libel to walk up on the scene
To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the Whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
just when everything looked so dark
Man, they said we better
accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with mister inbetween
No! Don’t mess with mister inbetween
