"Do They Know It's Christmas?" as written by Midge Ure and Bob Geldof....
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, no

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Oh, where nothing ever grows, no rain or river flows
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, let them know it's Christmastime again)
(Feed the world, let them know it's Christmastime again)
(Feed the world, let them know it's Christmastime again)
(Feed the world, let them know it's Christmastime again)
