"Where Is My Man" is the title of a song from 1983 by the American singer and actress Eartha Kitt. The song was co-written by comedy writer Bruce Vilanch along with musicians and producers Fred Zarr and Jacques Morali.

The song was first released in France as a single where it was wildly successful. The song features Kitt singing in a low, seductive-sounding voice. Included in the song are some sounds that have come to be associated with Kitt, including a purring sound similar to one she made while portraying Catwoman on the 1960s TV series Batman. The lyrics to the song detail specific things the singer expects to receive from her future lover, such as a trip to Saint-Tropez and shopping at Tiffany's.

The title failed to find release in the United States until the producers' attorneys (the firm of Grubman, Indursky, Shindler) introduced the title to their client, New York based Streetwise Records. Streetwise Records released the title in late 1983 in the United States to the dance and club markets. It was the first recording from Earth Kitt released in the United States after her exile to Paris following her outspoken objection to the Vietnam War at a White House function. It was her biggest hit in 30 years.

In the United Kingdom, "Where Is My Man" reached the Top 40 on the UK Singles Chart, where it peaked at #36. It was also a hit in dance clubs around the world. In the US, the song made the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, peaking at #7 and remaining on the survey for 14 weeks.
