Peter Tosh leading The Wailers on this, a perhaps gentler iteration of his later success with the ominous, lupine ‘Stepping Razor’:
Can’t stand it no longer
The wicked get stronger
Can’t stand it no longer, cause
The battle get hotter
Dem ah fi get a beatin’; mus get a beatin’.
Dem ah fi get a beatin’; a whole lotta’ beatin’.
