"Get Out of My Life, Woman" is a song written by Allen Toussaint and performed by Lee Dorsey. It reached number five on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart and number 44 on the Hot 100 singles chart in 1966.[1] It was featured on his 1966 album Ride Your Pony – Get Out of My Life Woman. Toussaint also arranged and produced the song.

In a song review for AllMusic, Mark Deming commented on the lyrics: "In short, the song is about as prototypical as R&B gets, though Lee Dorsey's great vocal performance and Allen Toussaint's expert arrangement give their version a distinctive edge".[2]
