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.
