How About La Bastringue. It's a popular Quebecois dance tune, but one of the verses goes:

Mademoiselle, voulez-vous dancer
La Bastringue, La Bastringue
Mademoiselle, voulez-vous dancer
La Bastringue va commencer.

Then there's a subsequent verse where she answers the guy, saying "Non, merci, j'ai mal de tete" (No thanks, I have a headache.)

Hope it's of some help.
