"Me and Mrs. Jones" is a 1972 soul song written by Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff and Cary Gilbert, and originally recorded by Billy Paul. It describes an extramarital affair between a man and his lover, Mrs. Jones. It has been covered by Michael Bublé, among others.

The single became Paul's only number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at that position for three weeks in December 1972. "Me and Mrs. Jones" also achieved this feat on Billboard's R&B Singles chart, remaining at the number-one position for four weeks. It replaced "I Am Woman" by Helen Reddy and was replaced by Carly Simon's "You're So Vain".
