"'N Everything" is an Al Jolson song by songwriters B.G. "Buddy" DeSylva and Gus Kahn. Jolson recorded '"N' Everything" in 1917 and then interpolated the song into Sinbad at New York's Winter Garden Theatre in 1918.[1] Jolson adapted the song with improvisation as performances of Sinbad progressed, leading Jolson to eventually be given co-lyricist credit on the song,[2] the success of "N' Everything" prompted Jolson to ask DeSylva for further songs.
