Mickey Lee Lane (born Mickey Lee Schreiber, February 2, 1941, Rochester, New York) is an American songwriter and arranger (died March 18, 2011).

Lane got a job in the Brill Building as a songwriter in the 1950s, working with Neil Sedaka as a touring pianist and Bill Haley as a songwriter. In addition, he released some singles on Brunswick Records and Swan Records in the 1950s and 60s; one of them, "Shaggy Dog", became a hit and peaked at #38 on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] His tune "Hey Sah-Lo-Ney" was covered by British group The Action and The Detroit Cobras (retitled "Hey Sailor").[2]

Lane continued working as a recording engineer from the late 1960s into the 1990s. Toward the end of the century, a compilation disc entitled Rockin' On...And Beyond was released, which featured both his previous singles and unreleased material.[3]
