Wenn du gehst is the ninth German single recorded by U. S. entertainer Connie Francis. The B-side was Gondola d'Amore.

Both songs had been written especially in German for Francis since after her previous eight German singles it had become clear that compositions of German origin were favored by the German audiences instead of cover versions of Francis' U. S. hits.

"Wenn du gehst" peaked at # 2 of the German charts[1]

"Gondola d'Amore" was subsequently recorded by Francis in French as Toutes les étoiles.
