Lyrics
You’ve got to ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
And eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
But don’t mess with Mister In-Between, ah

You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
And bring gloom down to the minimum
And have faith or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon 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, I said you got to ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
And eliminate the negative
And hang on to the affirmative
But don’t mess with Mister In-Between

To illustrate my last remark, Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
Tell me what did they do just when everything, everything looked so dark?

Man I said, we’ve got to ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
And eliminate the negative
And hang on to the affirmative
But don’t mess, don’t mess with Mister In-Between
No, no, no, don’t mess, oh baby, I said don’t mess
You better not, don’t mess with Mister In-Between, yeah

Català – Accentuar El Positiu
Cal accentuar el positiu
I eliminar el negatiu
I aferrar-te a l’afirmatiu
Però no juguis amb el senyor A Mitges, ah

Cal difondre l’alegria al màxim
I portar el pessimisme al mínim
I tenir fe o pandemonium
És obligat per caminar a l’escena

Per il·lustrar el meu últim comentari, Jonàs a la balena, Noè a l’arca
Què van fer just quan tot semblava tan fosc?

Home, he dit, cal accentuar el positiu
I eliminar el negatiu
I aferrar-te a l’afirmatiu
Però no juguis amb el senyor A Mitges

Per il·lustrar el meu últim comentari, Jonàs a la balena, Noè a l’arca
Digue’m, què van fer just quan tot, tot semblava tan fosc?

Home, he dit, hem d’accentuar el positiu
I eliminar el negatiu
I aferrar-nos a l’afirmatiu
Però no juguis, no juguis amb el senyor A Mitges
No, no, no, no juguis, oh noi, he dit que no juguis
Serà millor que no, no juguis amb el senyor A Mitges, sí
