Accentuate The Positive

Posted Feb 06 2010 6:09pm

To borrow the lyrics from Johnny Mercer’s hit, Accentuate The Positive which was #1 on the Billboard chart in 1945:

“You’ve got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mister In-Between
You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium’s
Liable to walk upon the scene”
