Lyrics 

Hi, hi we’re your weather girls

Ah-huh

And have we got news for you

You better listen

Get ready, all you lonely girls

And leave those umbrellas at home

Alright

Humidity is rising (uh rising), barometer’s getting low (how low girl?)

According to all sources (what sources now?), the street’s the place to go (we better hurry up)

‘Cause tonight for the first time (first time)

Just about half-past ten (half past ten)

For the first time in history

It’s gonna start raining men (start raining men)

It’s raining men, hallelujah, it’s raining men, amen

I’m gonna go out to run and let myself get

Absolutely soaking wet

It’s raining men, hallelujah

It’s raining men, every specimen

Tall, blonde, dark and lean

Rough and tough and strong and mean

God bless mother nature, she’s a single woman too

She took off to heaven and she did what she had to do

She taught every angel, she rearranged the sky

So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy

Oh, it’s raining men, yeah

Humidity is rising (humidity is rising, yeah yeah)

Barometer’s getting low (it’s getting low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low, low)

According to all sources (according to all sources)

The street’s the place to go

‘Cause tonight for the first time

Just about half past ten

For the first time in history

It’s gonna start raining man (start raining men)

It’s raining men, hallelujah

It’s raining men, amen

It’s raining men, hallelujah

It’s raining men, amen

It’s raining men, hallelujah

It’s raining men, amen

It’s raining men, hallelujah

Oh oh oh oh

It’s raining men

Tall, blonde, dark and lean

Rough and tough and strong and mean

Hallelujah it’s raining men, amen
