Four boys for every girl

It's rainin' men
The single best measure for locating frontiers is the sex ratio. The greater the imbalance of males to females the more frontierlike the place. In his monumental study of people leaving for America from England and Scotland between December 1773 and spring 1776, Bernard Bailyn has found that four out of five were males; and they were mostly younger males. At a time when only 18 percent of the English and Scottish populations were in the 15-24 age group, half of those leaving for America were in this category.
-Finke and Stark
And we're goin' to Bachelor City, 'cause it's four to one
You know we're goin' to Bachelor Camp City, gonna have some fun
Ya, we're goin' to Bachelor City, 'cause it's four to one
You know we're goin' to Bachelor Camp City, gonna have some fun, now
Four guys for every girl

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
