or
Bob Marley & the Wailers

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
