Band Aid – Do They Know Its Christmas

It’s Christmastime
There’s no need to be afraid
At Christmastime,
we let in light and we banish shade

And in our world of plenty
we can spread a smile of joy

Throw your arms
around the world at Christmastime


But say a prayer 

Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime it’s hard, but when you’re having fun
There’s a world outside your window
And it’s a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging
chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it’s them instead of you

And there won’t be snow in Africa this Christmastime
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
(Oooh) Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it’s Christmastime at all?

(Here’s to you) raise a glass for everyone
(Here’s to them) underneath that burning sun
Do they know it’s Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world 

Let them know it’s Christmastime again

Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmastime again

repeat then fade

(Bob Geldof & Midge Ure)
