"Please Don't Go Girl" is a 1988 ballad single from New Kids on the Block. Written and produced by Maurice Starr, it was the first release from their second album Hangin' Tough, and also became the groups first commercial hit. The song is very similar to the New Edition single "Is This the End?" which was also written by Starr for their debut album Candy Girl.

"Please Don't Go Girl" first rose from #62 to #46, on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart during the week of July 30, 1988. The single was the first major commercial exposure of the group, resulting in somewhat of a slow, but steady climb. The single eventually peaked at #10 the week of October 8, 1988.

In 1998, Aaron Carter performed a cover version of "Please Don't Go Girl", from his first self-titled album at age 11.

In 2004, Jordan Knight released an album singing previous works from New Kids on the Block including "Please Don't Go Girl."

Before the group's reunion, the song is considered to be a staple among Joey McIntyre's concert performances.
