"We Love You Beatles" is a song by the Carefrees. It was a 1964 novelty record about The Beatles and the song peaked at number 39 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was released on the London International label #10614.

The song was based on "We Love You Conrad" from the musical Bye Bye Birdie and has simple lyrics ("We love you Beatles, oh yes we do!"). Individual verses also have "We love you _____ (replace with "Ringo", "John", "Paul", and "George", in that order) along with reasons why the group loves that particular Beatle. It also includes at least three different vocal and instrumental quotations from the Beatles' 1963 hit song "She Loves You", suggesting the fact that "We Love You Beatles" was a reply to it.
