"If You Knew Susie" is the title of a popular song from the 1920s written by Buddy DeSylva[1] and Joseph Meyer.[2] In the largely comic song, a man sings that he knows a certain woman named Susie to be much wilder and more passionate than most people realize.

The song was Eddie Cantor's best-known success of the 1920s and the bestseller for five weeks in 1925.[3]
