( Ac-cent-thu-ate the positive, 
e-lim-inate the negative, 
ac-cent-thu-ate the positive, an' latch on! )
You gotta accent-thu-ate the positive,
E-lim-inate the negative,
An' latch on 
To the affirmative 
Don't mess with Mister in-between!
No,  don't mess with Mister in-between!
No,  don't mess with Mister in-between!
Or, would you rather be a duck?
( Would you like to swing on a star? ) On a star! 
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
You'd be better off than you are
You'd be much better than you are . . .
( You could be be swingin' on a star
You can be better than you are . . . )
