Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bow legged women
Subject: RE: Swimming with Bowlegged women
There is a recording of this of Colonel Potter from M*A*S*H singing this in the shower. Listen here.

According to this website, the phrase "Bowlegged women" was a euphemism for "Bare naked women". See here:

So the ditty, which endlessly reprints, goes "I love to go swimming with bare-naked women and swim between their legs!"
