You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me

You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me

"You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me" is a popular song.

The music was written by Harry Warren, the lyrics by Al Dubin. The song was published in 1932. It appears in the backstager Warner Brothers musical film "42nd Street". The song was inspired by one of the women working at the Warner Brothers studio, who when asked why she was still dating a certain man, said that he was getting to be a habit with her. In the movie, it is sung by the leading lady Dorothy Brock, played by Bebe Daniels.

*Allan Sherman recorded "You're getting to be a Rabbit with Me" on his 1963 album My_Son%2C_the_Nut.

*On the South Park season eight episode You Got F'd in the A, the song Butters danced to in the flashback of the freak accident caused by his tap dancing was an upbeat (yet risqué) tune of "I've Got Something in My Front Pocket For You", which sounds similar to this song in tune (and song title).


Julie Stevens, a British actress, sings it in The Avengers television series. The episode is called "The Decapod", which aired in 1962. She sings it in a lounge scene with a jazz combo accompanying her (piano, drums & upright bass).
