The Lyrics

ft. Snoop Dogg. The California Gold Rush began in 1848 with the majority of incomers flooding to Cali in early 1849 (49ers). This was a major event in American history because it caused a major influx of money in the United States, caused a mingling of different races in one place, and ultimately led to the creation of the great state of California. So I salute those 49ers with a song.
Intro: Greeting miners
Let’s search for riches

Verse 1: I know a place
Where the gold is truly flowing
Warm, filthy rich
There are gold nuggets in the water!
Drinkin’ whiskey straight
Workin’ long days is the mineshafts (dum, dum)
Men break their backs
Wishin’ they could catch a small draft (at last!)
You could travel the world
But nothing comes close to the gold we boast
Once you’re rushing with us
You’ll be rolling in dough
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

Chorus: California rush was unforgettable
Midus touched all of these small rocks
Mineshafts get so hot, they’ll cause you to pass out!
O-o-o-o-o-o! O! O-o-o-o-o-o!
California rush was just a miracle
Men with beards? We got it on lock!
West coast represent, now throw your picks up!
O-o-o-o-o-o! O! O-o-o-o-o-o!


Verse 2: Work in the mines
I got small rocks fall-ing on my head
Gold seen in the streams!
49ers on the riverbed (let’s go!)
You could travel the world
But no one comes close to our Cali host
Once you’re mining with us
Your financials will grow!
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

Chorus: California rush was just so regional
No where else was golden like this
Cali got so hot, it was declared a state
O-o-o-o-o-o! O! O-o-o-o-o-o!
California rush was just so pivotal
So much gold! An influx of cash!
West coast represent, now throw you picks up!
O-o-o-o-o-o! O! O-o-o-o-o-o!

Bridge: Oh man! Gold I’m getting
Take a break cuz my sack is heavy
Wow, wow! San Fran
This is the place for my pick and pan
I love the gold, this place is gold
El dorado? Not that old! (huh?)
This place is rich, gold in the ditch
But here is the glitch
I’m not sure, with the work, too many jerks
And when they steal they smirk
Mineshafts, streams, or ground springs
’49 was everything
Searchin’ high, searchin’ low
Good ol’ Cal’s got no mo’
For Jimmy, or Timmy, or Minnie
No winnings, just cuz there was too many
Yo Cali I thank you (yeah)
For letting me bank you (uh huh)
You got all torn up
Cuz the Gold Rush was in California
(Oh yeah!)

Chorus: California rush was unforgettable
Midus touched all of these big rocks
Mineshafts get so hot, they’ll cause you to pass out!
O-o-o-o-o-o! O! O-o-o-o-o-o!
California rush was just a miracle
Men with beards? We got it on lock!
West coast represent, now throw your picks up!
O-o-o-o-o-o! O! O-o-o-o-o-o!

Outro: California! California rush! (Califorina rush)
(I wish we could have a California rush)
California! California rush!
(I really wish we all could have a California rush)
There’s only many thousands who do what we do…

(Ages) Great take on the title and OS...yeah, we could sure go for a California Rush right now....what with the economy going bad to worse. Hope that 2012 will be so much better this time. Well, who knows? Digging 555 golden nuggets for this California Rush...BTW, I find this satire very educational and love the "Midas" reference.
