"Get Thee Behind Me Satan" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin for the 1936 film Follow the Fleet, where it was introduced by Harriet Hilliard. It was originally written for Ginger Rogers in Top Hat (1935).[1]

The title is a Biblical quotation, both from Luke 4:5-8 referring to the Temptation of Jesus by Satan and from Matthew 16:23, spoken by Jesus to Peter.
