I Love My Wife - But Oh, You Kid!

Here's a great long-form piece from Slate about the naughty old Tin Pan Alley tune, "I Love, I Love, I Love My Wife - But Oh, You Kid!"  It traces the changing musical and moral tastes of turn-of-the-century America with great alacrity and a number of very fun musical clips. Keep an eye out for a bombshell young Angela Lansbury!

I am pretty sure I remember Bugs Bunny saying "Oh, you kid" to Elmer or someone at some point.
