"Accentuate The Positive"

You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
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
Liable to walk upon the scene


Johnny Mercer

-------------------

first published in 1944, these words have been in my mind since i was a child.

not only are they great lyrics, they stand alone as a fun and inspirational poem.
