"It's Probably Me" is a song that was originally released in 1992 as an all-star collaboration by Sting, featuring Eric Clapton, Michael Kamen and David Sanborn. It was released as a single and on the Lethal Weapon 3 movie soundtrack.[1] It also appears on the Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994 international edition compilation album released in 1994.

The song uses leitmotifs that were first used on the soundtrack for the original Lethal Weapon film, released five years earlier.

The video of this song features Sting, Eric Clapton, Michael Kamen and David Sanborn performing together while a few scenes of Lethal Weapon 3 are shown.

Sting rerecorded the song in 1993 for his Ten Summoner's Tales album without any of the other musicians.
