My version has a different ending -

I'll give to your my house and lot
And all the money that I've got
If you'll marry, marry, marry, marry
If you'll marry me

Oh, I will take your house and lot
And all the money that you've got
And yes, I will marry, marry, marry, marry
Yes, I will marry you.

Come all the world and plainly see
She loves my money but she don't love me
So I won't marry, marry, marry, marry
I won't marry you.

Well, If you were a better lookin' man
You wouldn't have to offer me money and land
Won't no body marry, marrry, marry, marry
Won't no body marry you.

HE Well, I won't let you have the last word
SHE And I won't let you have the last word
TOGETHER So I guess I'll have to marry, marry, marry marry
So I guess I'll have to marry you.

^^

One of the first ones I learned: PAPER OF PINS

Been meaning to sing it to Alice when we met up at Joe's Bar.

There is a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, dear Liza,
There is a hole in the bucket, dear Liza, a hole.

Well, fix it, dear John, dear John, dear John.
Well, fix it, dear John, dear John, fix it.

This goes on:

With what? (Use straw.)
It's too long. (Cut it.)
With what? (The axe.)
Too dull. (Sharpen it.)
With what? (The stone.)
Too dry. (Wet it.)
With what? (Water.)
From where? (The well.)
How? (Use bucket.)
There is a hole in the bucket.

Have fun. Sing slow, and female gets more and more ticked off.

Black girl, black girl, don't lie to me.
Tell me where did you sleep last night
.
In the pines, in the pines, where the sun never shines,
And I shivered the whole night through.
Black girl, black girl, where'd you get that dress,
That silken dress of red?
I got it from a railroad man, for lying in his bed. (etc., etc.)

And how about one based on one side of a conversation? "The Chair" by George Strait. Interesting genre. Reminds me of La Chute, a whole novel comprising the voice of one character in conversation with one other who never speaks. Anybody read it?

There are several "courting" songs that alternate male/female - Huntingtontower (The DUKE OF ATHOL's Courtship), MADAM, WILL YOU WALK?, THE KEYS TO CANTERBURY.

Good morning, Tony! How's this:

Old woman, old woman, are you fond of (I can't remember: shearing?)
Speak a little louder sir, I'm very hard of hearing!

In the end he asks to marry her and she suddenly gets her hearing back!

I've asked for the lyrics to DAVY THE DROVER which is a song where a male and female singer alternate verses in a conversation. I'd like to find other examples of this style. The only one that springs to mind is THERE'S A HOLE IN THE BUCKET, where Henry and Liza discuss the problem.
