"Wann ich heiraten du" - I think the "du" here does not denote "you", but rather a shortened version of "tue", without the final "e" i.e. ich tue heiraten - slang/dialect for "I get married". (t and d are frequently interchangeable in dialect/pronunciation and in the historical development of German).
