: : What does the phrase "Dont go swimming with Bow legged women" mean.

: The song actually goes "Never go swimmin' with bowlegged women." The "Never" is neccessary for the meter: DA ta ta DA ta ta, etc.

Another version, from the movie Jaws -- Quint: "Here's to swimmin' with bowlegged women."
Bowlegged women would be more...accessible, I would think.
