Make It with You is a song written by David Gates and originally recorded by the pop/rock group Bread, of which Gates was a member. The song was well-received by easy-listening stations at the beginning of the singer-songwriter driven soft rock era, reaching number four on the Billboard Easy Listening Top 40.

The song first appeared on Bread's 1970 album On the Waters. Released as a single in June 1970, it would become the group's first top ten and only number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the U.S., spending the week of August 22, 1970, at the top spot. Billboard ranked the record as the No. 13 song of 1970. The single reached number five on the UK Singles Chart. It was also certified gold by the RIAA for sales of over one million copies.

When the song was released, Gates' mother was asked by a local interviewer how her son's music career was going. Misunderstanding the song's title, Mrs. Gates replied her son, David, and his group had just recorded a song called "Naked With You."
