I came across this song while I was watching the VH1s 100 greatest one-hit wonders. At first I wasn’t sure if I was hearing it right, but then when I rewinded it and listened to / watched it again, I couldn’t stop laughing and enjoying, both at the same time. ;) **Devilish Grin**

From the 1982 album Success, recorded by The Weather Girls (consisting of singers Izora Armstead and Martha Wash). The song was written by Paul Jabara and Paul Shaffer in 1979. This was subsequently recorded by other singers and released as many different versions, but the original one by The Weather Girls has become very iconic.



Some of the versions that stood out and came close to the original are:

1) Martha Warsh as a duet with RuPaul in 1997 from the album “The Collection and RuPaul's Go-Go Box Classics”



2) In 2001 Geri Halliwell recorded this song as her first single from her album “Scream If You Gonna Go Faster”.



3) It was also used in the 2001 Hollywood movie Bridget Jones’s Diary as a background score for one of the scenes, a really hilarious scene if I must say.



4) Lyrics in English:

Hi! Hi! We're Your Weather Girls, Tell Them Girl
And Have We Got News For You, You Better Listen
Get Ready All You'll Lonely Girls
And Leave Those Umbrellas At Home
Alright

Humidity's Rising, Barometer's Gettin' Low
According To All Sources The Street's The Place To Go
Tonight For The First Time Just About Half Past Ten
For The First Time In History It's Gonna Start Raining Men

It's Raining Men, Hallelujah, It's Raining Men Amen
I'm Gonna Go Out, I'm Gonna Let Myself Get Absolutely Soaking Wet
It's Raining Men, Hallelujah It's Raining Men, Every Specimen
Tall Blond Dark And Lean Rough And Tough And Strong And Mean

God Bless Mother Nature, She's A Single Woman Too
She Took For The Heaven, And She Did What She Had To Do
She Taught Every Angel To Rearrange The Sky
And Each And Every Woman Could Find Her Perfect Guy

It's Raining Men, Hallelujah, It's Raining Men, Amen
It's Raining Men, Hallelujah, It's Raining Men, Amen
It's Raining, It's Raining, Oh It's Stormy

I Feel Stormy Weather Moving In, About To Begin About To Begin
With The Thunder Don't You Loose Your Head
Rip Off The Roof And Stay In Bed

God Bless Mother Nature, She's A Single Woman Too
She Took For The Heaven, And She Did What She Had To Do
She Taught Every Angel To Rearrange The Sky
So That Each And Every Woman Could Find Her Perfect Guy
Oh It's Raining Men, Yeah

Humidity's Rising, Barometer's Gettin' Low
According To All Sources The Street's The Place To Go
Tonight For The First Time Just About Half Past Ten
For The First Time In History It's Gonna 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
