Willie Nelson's Original Lyrics

Man, you've got to a-accen-tuate
The positive, eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

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 you've got to accentuate
The positive, eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

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 you've got to accentuate
The positive, eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between...
