Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Whitesnake

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Whitesnake's, "Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Anal love in the heart of the city.
The Real Lyrics:
Ain't no love in the heart of the city.
The Story: My father heard this tune way back when, and sat and steamed more and more as the song went on ('Ain't no love' is repeated every other line for most of the song) until he got fed up and yelled, 'This is disgusting!' It took my girlfriend (at the time) and I about 10 minutes of hysterical laughter to explain to him what was so funny, once he told us what he thought the disgusting line in the song was. - Submitted by: Rogue
Whitesnake's, "Here I Go Again"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've never known.
Like a drifter I was born to wear cologne.
The Real Lyrics:
Here I go again on my own
Going down the only road I've never known.
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
The Story: My uncle thought this was what it said for years, and since there was no Internet to look it up, he didn't find out until way later! - Submitted by: Claire Nelson
Whitesnake's, "Here I Go Again"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Like A Drifter I Was Born To Wear Cologne
The Real Lyrics:
Like A Drifter I Was Born To Walk Alone
The Story: I thought it made perfect sense because a drifter wouldn't be able to bathe regulary and would need cologne. - Submitted by: Mona Lisa
Whitesnake's, "Here I Go Again"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Like a twister I was born to walk alone.
The Real Lyrics:
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.
The Story: My friend Brent in high school loved to throw out lines from songs whenever it fit into the conversation. One time we got into a big debate over whether the lyric was 'like a twister' (his interpretation) or 'like a drifter' (mine). I kept insisting that his version didn't make sense. And I think he knew I was right, but enjoyed watching me get all flustered about it. We re-established contact recently and he brought up this song again--too funny. - Submitted by: Corinne
Whitesnake's, "Here I Go Again"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Like a twister, I was born to walk alone.
The Real Lyrics:
Like a drifter, I was born to walk alone.
The Story: I had an argument in the car with pregnant girlfriend about these lyrics. She was right! - Submitted by: Rick Jr
Whitesnake's, "Slow An' Easy"
The Misheard Lyrics:
My heart is feeling constipated,
It's beating like a big bass drum
The Real Lyrics:
My heart is beating faster, babe,
It's beating like a big bass drum
The Story: My wife heard this on the cd in my car. All of a sudden she starts laughing. I asked her what was so funny. In between fits of laughter she asked, 'Did he just say, 'My heart is feeling constipated', there?'. Hence, another misheard lyric was born on 3/22/2002. Thanks, Bunny. - Submitted by: PunkBass
