I don't know if anyone other than myself ever used this as a cynical catch phrase, but there was an NBC sitcom about 1964 inspired, they said. by the life and writings of James Thurber which was called,

"My Life and Welcome to It."

This has been big on ESPN's SportsCenter for a while. A highlight
of, say, a basketball player X making a great move is shown and the
anchor says "It's X's world; we're just living in it." At least
since the late 90's. Maybe first with Michael Jordan? Can you help
narrow it down, Alice?
