{{#invoke:Hatnote|hatnote}} {{#invoke:Infobox|infobox}} "'A' You're Adorable" is a popular song with music by Sid Lippman and lyrics by Buddy Kaye and Fred Wise, published in 1948.

The biggest hit version was recorded by Perry Como, with The Fontane Sisters on March 1, 1949. This recording was released on single records as follows:

Another recording by Jo Stafford and Gordon MacRae was also very popular. The recording was released by Capitol Records as catalog number 15393. The flip side was "Need You." The recording first appeared on the Billboard charts on March 25, 1949, lasting 13 weeks and peaking at position #4.<ref> {{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }} </ref>

Another recording by the Tony Pastor orchestra also charted. The recording was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 38449. The recording first appeared on the Billboard charts on May 6, 1949, lasting 2 weeks and peaking at position #22.

The song formed the basis for a Morecambe and Wise sketch, where Eric Morecambe started with "A you're adorable, B you're so beautiful" and then randomly chose letters such as J, Q or Z to fox Ernie Wise.

The song was used in a Star Trek: The Next Generation DVD extra, where Patrick Stewart, as Jean-Luc Picard, sang the song with slightly altered lyrics.

The song was also performed by an Anything Muppet on Sesame Street to his girlfriend, who was then scared off by Cookie Monster.
