I’ve had this song in my personal ‘favorites’ files since 2002, when it was only ninety-eight years old. Bruce Caplan’s post on George M. Cohan inspired me to dig out these words of wisdom from way back when.

In 1911, when RCA Victor released “Life’s a Funny Proposition”, the song was seven years old. It was introduced in 1904, along with “The Yankee Doodle Boy” and “Give My Regards to Broadway”, in Cohan’s Broadway production, “Johnny Jones”. Cohan sings this as the title character.
