Written by Warren Zevon 1982 Zevon Music

When my Mama met my girl, she took me aside
She's a soft-spoken woman but she speaks her mind
She said "De de de de de de de de de de"
Let nothing come between you
De de de de de de de de de de
Don't let nothing come between you"
I went to see my friend to ask his advice
He just smiled and, "She's good around the eyes."
But I'd already made up my mind
Let nothing come between us

There are frustrated people in town
Who might envy us and try to bring us down
We know they don't really mean any harm
That doesn't mean we've gotta let 'em hang around

Got the license--got the ring
Got back the blood tests and everything
Putting on my boutonniere--It's her favorite flower
Then I'm walking down the altar and I'm gonna take the vow
De de de de de de de de de de
Don't let nothing come between us
De de de de de de de de de de
Don't let nothing come between us

There are frustrated people in town
Who might envy us and try to bring us down
We know they don't really mean any harm
That doesn't mean we've gotta let 'em hang around

I have advice for the young and old
If I may be so bold
When you find someone to have and hold
Don't let nothing come between you
De de de de de de de de de de
Get together and let nothing come between us
De de de de de de de de de de
Get together and let nothing come between us
