Vocal:  Jimmy Durante
-------------------------------------
 
Frank: Do I sing now?
Jimmy:  No, not now! Who will be with you when I'm far away,
When I'm far far away from you?
Frank:  Now?
Jimmy:  Who's gonna tell you all those pretty things?
Frank:  Now, Jim?
Jimmy:  No!  Who's gonna take you to Woolworth for those diamond rings?
Frank:  Now?
Jimmy:  Have patience! Who will be with you when I'm far away,
When I'm far far away from you?  Away from, take it Frankie, take it!
Frankie:  Who will be with you when I'm far away,
When I'm far away from you?
Jimmy:  Take it, Frankie boy!
Frankie:  Who will be with you when I'm far away,
When I'm far away from you?
Jimmy:  Whatta voice!  Whatta voice!
Frankie (imitating Jimmy):  You know, Jimmy, I walked into a fruit store the other 
day to buy two apples.  The clerk says that will cost you two dollars apiece.  I 
says okay.  And so I gave him a five dollar bill, and as he was about to give me 
my dollar change, I said, keep it, we're even, I stepped on a grape coming in 
(laughter).
Frankie:  Who will be with you when you are far away, when I am far away from you?  Take it Jimmy boy.
Jimmy:  Now, who will be with you when I'm far away, when I'm far far away from you?  Take it, tiger!
Frankie: Who will be with you when you're far away, when I'm far away from you?
Take it, James!
Jimmy: Okay.  I went to Santa Anita the other day, thirteen miles from Hollywood as a nose flies
(laughter).  I walked up to the two dollar window and said to the clerk, Give me a ticket on
Honeymoon!  And he said, to win?  And I said, what then, to lose? (laughter)
Frankie:  Who will be with you when you're far away?
Both:  When you're far away from me, when I'm far away from you?
(applause)
Jimmy:  Thank you.
(applause)
Frankie:  There goes Jimmy Durante, a truly great entertainer, right, Marvin?
Marvin:  You said it, boss.  And a truly great nose.
