[Bob Marley]

Simmer down: you lickin' too hot, so!
Simmer down: soon you'll get dropped, so!
Simmer down: can you hear what I say?
Simmer down: simmer won't you - why won't you -
why won't you simmer down?
Simmer down!

Long time people de used to say,
What sweet nanny goat
A-go run him belly, so:
Simmer down: oh, control your temper!
Simmer down: or the battle will be hotter
Simmer down: man, you hear what I say?
Simmer down: oh, that I'm a-leavin' you today!

Simmer down: oh, you hear what I say?
Simmer simmer: a-that I'm leavin' you today!
Simmer down: can you hear what I say?
Simmer down!

Chicken merry, hawk deh near
And when him deh near
You must beware, so:
Simmer down: oh, control your temper!
Simmer down: for the battle will be hotter;
Simmer down: and-a you won't get no supper.
Simmer down: and you know you bound to suffer
Simmer down: simmer - simmer - simmer right down:
Simmer down: like you never did before!
Simmer down: oh, oh, oh!
Simmer down: man, you hear what I say?
Simmer down: you lickin' too hot, so!
Simmer down: and you know soon you'll get dropped, so!
Simmer down: I want to simmer - simmer down!
Simmer down: simmer down - simmer down!
Simmer down: simmer - simmer down!
Simmer down: oh, simmer - simmer down!
Simmer down: and you never ...
