Far Away From You

Writer(s):

Jimmy Durante: Hey now who will be with you
When I am far away, when I’m far far away from you?
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.
