JIMMY DURANTE – ‘The Day I Read A Book’ – 1947

I loved Jimmy Durante when I was a kid and this song of his was one of my favourites.

I would put on the old 78 rpm records and sit on the floor in the living room listening to this and his other big hit ‘Inka Dinka Doo’. It always made me giggle . I think you actually have to love books to understand the humour.
