It's from "Look Back in Anger", quintessential angry-young-man play from
the 1950's by (I believe?) John Osborne. In Act 2, anti-hero Jimmy
Porter and his buddy Cliff put on a kind of music-hall vaudeville parody
act-"Jock and Day" is the name of their act ("I'm Jock, he's Day").  In
that guise they give voice to the rousing musical number, "Don't Be
Afraid to Sleep With Your Sweetheart, Just Because She's Better Than
You."

I think Steve Urkowitz may be referring to the Frank Silvera Lear.  1962
or 63 I think, the second or third year of the Delacorte?
