Songtekst: Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas

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 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 Christmas time

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 Christmas time at all?

 

(Here’s to you) raise a glass for everyone

(Here’s to them) underneath that burning sun

Do they know it’s Christmas time 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
