It's Raining Men


It's surprising how hard it is for an apartment of girls who love to preform to come up with the perfect ward talent show number. For weeks we threw around countless ideas--everything from skits, to musical performances, to synchronized swimming numbers--but nothing stuck. Finally, the decision was made to do a lip-sync to The Weather Girl's It's Raining Men.

So with umbrella's in hand we sent two hours night choreographing the number (not a small feat in our small apartment). It ended up being one of those late-night roommate moments that you treasure.

We didn't mean to go all out for our talent number, it just happened and before we knew it we found ourselves in crazy outfits, wellies, with wonderful umbrellas (as my roommates may attest to, I'm somewhat of an umbrella slob) walking into the church.

The ward talent show was fabulous, one of the best I've ever been to, but the crowning number was really our number.

While we It's Raining Men was our number, we decided to play a little trick on the ward by starting with Singing in the Rain. The crowd went wild when we changed to It's Raining Men, especially since the lyrics are so appropriate for a singles ward.

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 - Barometer's getting low
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 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 to rearrange the sky
So that 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! Ame---------nnnn!

I feel stormy weather / Moving in about to begin
Hear the thunder / Don't you lose your head
Rip off the roof and stay in bed

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 to rearrange the sky
So that each and every woman could find her perfect guy
It's Raining Men! Yeah!

Humidity is rising - Barometer's getting low
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 men.

It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! - It's Raining Men! Amen!
It's Raining Men! Hallelujah! - It's Raining Men!


If I can get my hands on the video of us, I'll try to post it.
