Do They Know It's 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 to 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 
Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow 
Do they know it's Christmastime at all? 

Here's to you, raise a glass for ev'ryone 
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

-B. Geldof
