"For Me And My Gal" is a 1917 popular standard song by George W. Meyer, Edgar Leslie, and E. Ray Goetz.

This song was used in the 1942 film of the same name, where it is the first song that Jo Hayden (Judy Garland) and Harry Palmer (Gene Kelly) perform together.

The Decca single release of the Garland/Kelly version was a major hit of 1943. In 1961, rock'n'roll singer Freddy Cannon revived the song.

The song was included on the Al Jolson compilation album The Jolson Story: Rock-a-Bye Your Baby (1957).
