Vivian Greene recorded a "Bowlegged Boogie", nice swinging piano-rolling "double entendre" blues, from circa 1950, with lines like:

Jack & Jill went up the hill
Jill cut out
cause she had to meet Bill
do the bowlegged boogie

It takes a bowlegged woman
and a ..?.. meat man
to do the boogie woogie
in a sardine-can

Mama's in a gamblin' house
trying her best to win
Sister's ..?.. house
saying Richard let me in
