Show some leg

    The phrase "show some leg" means to reveal some skin, usually as an inducement to get someone to do something, or to make yourself more attractive.

    I've never heard "show a leg" in any context, not even to get up in the morning. There is a phrase -- shake a leg -- which means hurry up, get a move on.
