"You and Me" is a 1977 song by Alice Cooper, released in 1977 as the lead single from his album Lace and Whiskey.

The song is a soft rock ballad, reaching number nine on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number eight on the Cash Box Top 100 in the summer of 1977. In Canada the song reached number three. It may have alienated even the biggest of Cooper's rock fans as it turned out to be his last US top-ten hit until "Poison" 12 years later.

Cooper regularly performed "You and Me" live on his 1977 and 1978 concert tours. He also performed the song on The Muppet Show in 1978,[1] as a duet.
