"It's Only Natural" is a 1991 song by Australian rock group Crowded House from their 1991 album Woodface. The single was originally released as a promotional single in June 1991 with the intent to release the song as the lead single for Woodface, however due to changes made, the single was released in September 1992 instead. The song reached number 15 in Australia, number 24 on the UK Singles Chart, and number five on the US Modern Rock Chart.

The song was featured in the end credits of the 1992 motion picture, There Goes the Neighborhood (film), starring Catherine O'Hara.
