"On and On" is a song by American singer/songwriter Stephen Bishop. The song became a major hit, peaking at number 11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.[1] It was his greatest hit, and spent 28 weeks on the chart. In Canada, the song peaked at number 6.[2]

On the U.S. Easy Listening chart, "On and On" peaked at number two.[3] It reached number three on the corresponding Canadian chart.

Despite failing to crack the Top Ten, it was the 30th ranked single by the Billboard magazine year-end chart for 1977 as a result of its almost seven-month chart run.[4] The song appears on his 1976 album, Careless.

The song was featured in the films Anger Management, How to Deal, The Hitcher, Margot at the Wedding, and Remarkable Power.
