Re-Ron is a 1984 song by Gil Scott-Heron. It criticizes the campaign for the re-election of Ronald Reagan.

Notable lines include:

"Would we take Fritz without Grits? We'd take Fritz the Cat. Would we take Jesse Jackson? Hell, we'd take Michael Jackson!"

The B-side of the record was "B-movie" which criticized the election of a former B movie actor as the new president of the United States of America. These two songs by Scott-Heron were among many songs criticizing Reagan recorded by artists during the 1980s.
