use mysqladmin to drop the database (if you have the privs), then recreate.
Otherwise, you're better off using something like phpMyadmin or the like, because you (literally) have to drop the tables one by one
here's how to do it though:
mysql (databasename) -umyusername -p
DROP TABLE `table`;
continue untill you have no tables left
