The Beggining of The End, Munnings Brothers

Story

The Beginning of the End was a funk group from Nassau, Bahamas. The group formed in 1969 and consisted of three brothers (Frank, Ray and Roy Munnings), a fourth member on bass (Fred Henfield),[1] and a fifth on guitar (Livingston Colebrook). They released an album entitled Funky Nassau in 1971 on Alston Records (a subsidiary of Atlantic Records), and the track "Funky Nassau - Part I" became a hit single in the U.S., peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #7 on the Billboard Black Singles chart.[2] The same track reached #31 in the UK Singles Chart in March 1974.[3]

Lyrics

Nassau's gone funky
Nassau's gone soul
We've got a doggone beat now
We gonna call our very own

Nassau rock and Nassau roll
Nassau's got a whole lotta soul


Huh
Feel alright


Mini skirts
Maxi skirts
And afro-haired dudes
People doin' their own thing
They don't care 'bout me or you


Nassau's gone funky
Nassau's gone soul
And we've got a doggone beat now
We gonna take care of business too


Listen to ze drummer, lay down his beat
Listen to ze bass man play zat same groovy beat
Attend the guitars is that soulsome tune
L'organ aussi!
Et les horns, oui, oui
Hors


Funky Nassau
Nassau funky
Alors, puis-je jouier s'il vous plait


New York you know
Has got a lot of soul, soul
And London Town
Is too doggone cold, too cold, hey
Nassau's got sunshine
And this you all know
But we all go funky
We got some soul, too, yeah

Yeah-yo
Yeah-yo
Yeah-yo
Yeah-yo

(scat)

Trumpet! Encore une fois!

Funky Nassau, funky Nassau
Funky Nassau, funky Nassau
Funky Nassau, funky Nassau
Funky Nassau, funky Nassau
