Subject: RE: 'Conversation' songs
JOHN RILEY (another broken token-type song)

The Broken Token, Mike Agranoff's hilarious take-off on broken token songs (you can hear him sing a bit of it if you go to CDBaby).

The last couple of verses of the Gypsy Davey song(s), where the husband asks the wayward wife "What about your goosefeather bed," etc & she responds "I'd rather sleep on the cold, cold ground," etc.

JOHNNY BE FAIR has a conversation between a daughter & her father, then the daughter & her mother.

Then there are all the riddle songs:
I gave my love a cherry that had no stone...
Where have you been, Billy boy, Billy boy...
Tumbalalaika
to mention just a few...
