"Love Me or Leave Me" is a U.S. popular song from the 1920s.

The music was written by Walter Donaldson and the lyrics by Gus Kahn. The song was introduced in the Broadway play, Whoopee!, which opened in December, 1928 . Ruth Etting's performance of the song was so popular that she was also given the song to sing in the play Simple Simon, which opened in February, 1930.

Singer/pianist/songwriter Nina Simone also recorded the song on her debut album Little Girl Blue (1958) and Let It All Out (1966).

The song features a tribute to Bach from 1:40 to 2:50.
