"Mistaken I.D." as written by and Darrin/pierre O'brien....
There's this lady around my way
Who sees me like every other day
Who swears and screams a name
She says "Randy where you been?
I remember you were my best friend
Me and you was in it till the end
You was like a son to me back then
You were the son that I never had
I've been huntin' you down man
I'll let you know about my foolproof plan
We can get a crew like we once had
And run from town to town
We'll never ever be found
Say Randy how's that sound?
When I was down
You were always around, I'm so glad
That I finally found you"

[Chorus]
Mistaken me
It seems like you've mistaken me
See you've mistaken me
It seems like you've mistaken me, taken me

Say lady if I seem a way
If my enthusiasm ain't the same
It's just that Randy ain't my name
But I tell you this most every day
There's nothing I can say
To change the way
You're feeling about me
Try but you refuse to hear
Even when I'm walking with my lady
You say "How you doing baby
I like your new girlfriend
You've always attracted them princesses"
I wish I could pretend
I pray you find your friend
And all she said in the end
Is "Randy where you been?"

[Chorus]

There's this lady around my way
Who sees me like every other day
Who swears and screams a name
She says "Randy where you been?
I remember you were my best friend
Me and you was in it till the end
You was like a son to me back then
You were the son that I never had
I've been huntin' you down man
I'll let you know about my foolproof plan
We can get a crew like we once had
And run from town to town
We'll never ever be found
Say Randy how's that sound?
When I was down
You were always around, I'm so glad
That I finally found you"

[Chorus]

    General CommentThis song to me is about a man (Randy) , possibly a famous man, who runs into a woman who claims she knows him from the past. Randy thinks the woman is crazy, and quite frankly cant remember who this woman is. When in reality Randy is the one with the problems, he has become too caught up in his everyday life to rememer the people who were important in his past.

    General CommentIt says it...so did he in concert. This song is about a lady, a bit cuckoo, that use to mistake Clarence (Citizen Cope) for someone named Randy. That's it. Awesome, awesome beat...gets the head a-bobbin'.
