    And when those cherries are all gone, it’s the pits.

    Women, booze, and a blues club. They’ve got the lyrics.

    Why dish? Someone probably owned the rights to the song’s name.

    Guy Lombardo recorded this song in the 1930s—“It looks like rain in cherry blossom lane, the sunshine of your smile is no longer there.”

    you are probably right, the news syndicates did not want to pay royalties.

    Nope, you can’t copyright a song title. If you sang the song on a radio or TV program, then there would be a problem. Maybe this strip is so old, it was from before the song was written.

    The song came out in 1931. No indication of when this strip came out, but it could have been about the same time.

    Going by the minimalistic art style and Mutt’s hair, I’d put this one in the late 60’s.
