: Is there a 'first' attributed to the phrase "Everything Old Is New Again"?

: It seems to be a very natural sentence to those people that wish to express either:

: "you can't do anything unique, because it's been done before" or "the material you just discovered and loved has been around for ages"

It was the title of a song in the movie musical "All That Jazz." Good song, in a good flick. a Bob Fosse biopic. I don't know if there was earlier use.
