"You Got It" is a song from Roy Orbison's twenty-second studio album, Mystery Girl (1989). According to the official Roy Orbison discography by Marcel Riesco[1], "You Got It" was released in January 1989 with "The Only One" as the B-side. The A-side reached number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on the Adult Contemporary chart,[2] returning Orbison to the Top 10 for the first time in 25 years.[3] It also reached number three on the UK Singles Chart in early 1989, posthumously released after Orbison's heart attack on December 6, 1988. While "You Got It" was Orbison's last hit single in the US, the single "I Drove All Night" made number seven on the UK charts in 1992. In addition, it was his only solo Top 10 hit on the Hot Country Songs charts, peaking at number seven. Although it is an Orbison solo single, Orbison's fellow Traveling Wilburys bandmates, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne, co-wrote the song and played instruments on the record.

Orbison gave his only public rendition of the hit at the Diamond Awards Festival in Antwerp, Belgium on November 19, 1988, 17 days before his death. This footage was incorporated into the song's music video. A 2014 version incorporated videos of rehearsal and practice sessions.

The song's refrain "Anything you want, you got it, anything you need, you got it, anything at all, you got it" is used in the Die Antwoord song "Ugly Boy."
