Do They Know It’s Christmas? (Band Aid)

Do They Know It’s Christmas? (Band Aid)

It’s Christmas time, there’s no need to be afraid
At Christmas time, 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 Christmas time

But say a prayer, Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it’s hard, but while 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 were reaching out and touching you

And bring peace and joy to Africa
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it’s Christmas time 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

Feed the world
Feed the world – [repeated to end]
