mysql won't log in

 7:16 pm on Jan 8, 2010 (gmt 0)

Does anyone have an Idea as to why this command is not logging in properly.
mysql -u username -p password databasname
When I run that it comes up with another prompt for my password so I type in password and then it says the database password does not exist. Why is it taking password as the database name and not databasename? What is wrong with my syntax? Thanks,

Don't have a space after the -p

mysql -u username -ppassword databasename
