Do They Know It's Christmas - song lyrics

The lyrics to a classic Christmas pop song, Do They Know It's Christmas - written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure and recorded by various pop artists in 1984 under the name of Band Aid as a charity single to raise money for famine-stricken Ethiopia.

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
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 Christmas time again.
