Recorded August 6th 1958 at Rex Productions Inc. in Los Angeles, California by Bumps Blackwell
Arranger and Conductor: Rene Hall
Musicians: Bumps Blackwell Orchestra


Written By: Johnny Mercer (Lyrics) and Harold Arlen (Music)

You've got to accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmitive
But don't mess with mister inbetween

You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minumum
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

They said we better
accentuate the positive
eliminate the negative
latch on to the affimitive
But don't mess with mister inbetween

To illustrate my last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
just when everything looked so dark
don't mess, don't mess, don't mess
with mister inbetween
