Cue Sheet

OPENER    Mainstream

Circle left
You've got to
Ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
E-lim-enate the negative

Left allemande, dosado your own
The men star left inside you roam
Turn thru, left allemande
You swing your lady round, you promenade the land
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mr. In-Between


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru four hands around you go
You meet your corner dosado go one time you know
Swing thru, boys run right again
Bend the line a right & left thru
You flutter wheel, slide thru,
Swing your corner, you promenade her too
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mr. In-Between


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain
Your turn & chain her right back home again
Join all your hands you circle left go round
Left allemande, weave the ring
Spread joy up to the maximum
You swing your lady round, you promenade the town
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mr. In-Between

Ac-cent-tchu-ate The Positive (Mister In-Between)
 
 

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

(To illustrate his last remark
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they do
Just when everything looked so dark)

Man, they said we better
Accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No, do not mess with Mister In-Between
Do you hear me, hmm?

(Oh, listen to me children and-a you will hear
About the elininatin' of the negative
And the accent on the positive)
And gather 'round me children if you're willin'
And sit tight while I start reviewin'
The attitude of doin' right

(You've gotta 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) down to the minimum
Otherwise (otherwise) pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene

To illustrate (well illustrate) my last remark (you got the floor)
Jonah in the whale, Noah in the ark
What did they say (what did they say)
Say when everything looked so dark

Man, they said we better
Accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
No! Don't mess with Mister In-Between

Lyrics by Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen.
Recorded by Bing Crosby.
