Real southern

Harry Warren:" We had a gal on the Warner lot and we used to kid her a lot about some guy she was going with. And she was real southern, she had a southern accent. And Al Dubin said to her, ‘Why are you going around with that guy all the time?’ And she said, ‘I don’t know, I guess he’s getting to be a habit.’ And that’s how we wrote, ‘You’re Getting to Be a Habit with Me.’”
