Just like a one winged dove...
I was with some friends, and we were all singing along, when it got to that part, they sang the correct version, and I sang mine...they stop, looked and said, "What did you say?". When I answered, they all laughed out loud and even pretended to be "one winged doves", saying something about a mental image. I could only say, "Well, it fits..."

i thought it was 'one wing dove' up until about two years ago..until i realized how silly that would be..'just like the one wing dove..' of YORE? The one that, that...can't..FLY? In fact i thought it'd be a funny conversation in a movie..

I used to think the same thing too, and convinced my family it was correct, claiming she couldn't fly so she wrote the words that way.
Wasn't until college where i was proven wrong.

My sweetheart told me, "You know the song that goes, 'just like a one-winged dove'? I used to think that was 'just like a word ranger'! Isn't that funny?" Well, it's even funnier than he thought--double misheard. I especially appreciate this since I am an editor by trade, and I'm grateful for Stevie Nicks's lack of clarity, which gave him this romantic image of rangers out there making the world safer for words, an image which I can only hope to live up to..."oo, oo, oo!"
