Go and tell her you're sorry
You ain't too big to apologize, no
If you care that much about her 
You gotta treat my sister nice, yeah

I heard you kick her in the bum even though she's still your baby
But that's not the way to treat a lady
If she is wrong try show her the right
No need to quarrel, no need to make a fight
Beca' the daughters take a little longer
To sight up the Father, yeah
I said the daughters take a little longer
To do the works of Jah Jah
Never let her go astray, yeah
Try show her the right way, yeah

I heard you kick her in the bum even though she's still your baby
But that's not the way to treat your lady
If she is wrong try show her the right
No need to quarrel, no need to make a fight
Beca' the daughters take a little longer
To sight up the Father, yeah
I said the daughters take a little longer
To do the works of Jah Jah
Never let her go astray, yeah
Try show her the right way, yeah

She's your sister
So don't mistreat her
I said the daughters take a little longer
Daughters take a little longer
She'll learn one day
Never let her go astray, yeah
She's your sister
So don't mistreat her, no
She'll learn one day
