"Stumblin' In" is a song written by Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn, performed by Chris Norman and Suzi Quatro. Originally released as a standalone single, it was later added to some editions of the Quatro album If You Knew Suzi...[1]

The single peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1979. The song was Quatro's only US Top 40 hit and Norman's lone US charting effort apart from the band Smokie. In the UK Singles Chart, where the song was also Norman's only chart hit as a solo artist, the disc hit the listing on 11 November 1978 and peaked at number 41 with eight weeks in the chart.[2] It was a number-one hit in Canada.[3] It was Norman's first single as a solo artist.

Namibian singer Nianell and South African singer Dozi recorded a version in 2009 on their cover duets album It Takes Two.[4]

In 1979, Al Bano and Romina Power made a cover version in French under the title "Et je suis à toì". German singers Bernd Clüver and Marion Maerz recorded a German version in the same year under the title "Schau mal herein (die Tasse Kaffee)".[5] There is also a Hungarian version under the title "A szerelem él" recorded by Csuka Mónika and Korda György with the "Express Együttes" in 1982.
