(Band Aid) Do They Know It's Christmas

It's Christmas-time
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 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

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?
