A couple of people in my department are debating the correct spelling of
the phrase "first things first." One thinks it's as I just wrote, as an
abbreviated version of "first things go first," and another thinks it's
"first thing's first," as in, "the first thing is first." I cannot find
a resource that provides a definitive answer to this.

Does anyone know, or can anyone direct me to a resource that discusses
this phrase?
