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
And 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
And 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

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
(Here's to them) underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmastime at all?

Feed the world Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
