The Chimpz Official Music Video for CALIFORNIA!

“CALIFORNIA”

The Chimpz on CALIFORNIA set

Having known the members of The Chimpz for many years now, I have come to realize that this is one of the most talented, and hardest working bands who also know how to party that you will find anywhere.

This comes from a great deal of dedication driven by an obsessive passion for their art and performance.

Music from The Chimpz definitely have a sound that you will always recognize as their unique signature, while at the same time delivering a staggeringly diverse portfolio of genre-smashing compositions.

Their sound just keeps getting better and better – while maintaining an intense, fun, and often aggressive energy.

The song CALIFORNIA and the music video that brings it into view is a fine example of the ever-increasing, progressive evolution being produced by The Chimpz!!

Watch their videos, go to their shows, and buy their music.

The Chimpz are one of those bands that are still yet to find their full bloom.

Don’t be left out of this party!!!

You will want to be in with them here and now, because their inevitable, and quite grand success will make them almost untouchable; simply because their creative expansion will keep them on the move with new and exciting adventures in the studio and on the road!

FROM THE CHIMPZ YOUTUBE

You might have heard our music on the hit show on FX, “Sons of Anarchy” but this song right here is new to our arsenal!!

This song is about life here in California (obviously!) but it is also about following your dreams.

It’s also about working hard to obtain the lifestyle in which you desire.

When you see this video, you will know exactly where we are coming from.

We love the state of California and wouldn’t live anywhere else!

We hope that this video will entice the rest of the world to come to our home state and experience what we get to everyday!

This video is for you ChimpzNation! We love you and appreciate all of your continued support!” ~The Chimpz

Lyrics to “California”:

Time flies when ya livin in the city

Where everybody knows ya gots to stay gritty

Sounds dope when you play it on a midi but since life is live, can’t cope? You ain’t getting’ no pity

so we keep truckin’ homie real hustle, keep it blue collar fresh step with sheer muscle

Press go if you really wanna eat then bathe up in the sunshine sand on ya feet

but uh uh I would never trade. Why, why? Cause I’m about the craze

I will always keep my path ablaze that’s the California way

Chorus

When I wake up in the morning with that sunshine on my face

I remember why I came here ’cause there ain’t no other place

It reminds me of ambition, ain’t nothing like a paper chase

So I’ll see you when you get here

See you when you get to California

To California

This is a state where everyone you love or hate

Is feeling sunshine on a stormy day

’cause California is feeling that sunshine, ’cause California is feeling that sunshine

I get to thinking everytime when times get tough you think you had enough

But you gots to get up.

You gotta take your time at the end of the day

You’ve been hustlin really hard all work and no play

’cause all the hot chicks are looking fine

All the money will get you to the front line

Club is hot and I’m looking to play

That’s the California way

Chorus

When I wake up in the morning

With that sunshine on my face

I remember why I came here

’cause there ain’t no other place

It reminds me of ambition

Ain’t nothing like a paper chase

So I’ll see you when you get here

See you when you get to California

Hey … Hey

When I wake up in the morning

With that sunshine on my face

I remember why I came here

’cause there ain’t no other place

It reminds me of ambition

Ain’t nothing like a paper chase

So I’ll see you when you get here

See you when you get to California

You know you want to do it, this is where we live, so Suck It Up Tough It Out, Nothin’ To It

in California

You know you want to do it, this is how we live, so Suck It Up Tough It Out, Nothin’ To It

In California

You know you want to do it, this is where we live, so Suck It Up Tough It Out,

Here In California
