Do They Know It's Christmas?

Do They Know It's Christmas?

Band Aid

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

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

Spare a thought this yuletide for the deprived
If the table was turned would you survive

Here's to them

Underneath that burning sun

You ain't gotta feel guilt just selfless
Give a little help to the helpless

Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Feed the world

Feed the world

Feed the world

Feed the world

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again - [repeated]

Feed the world

Feed the world - [repeated to end]
