"Bangla Desh" as written by and George Harrison....
My friend came to me
With sadness in his eyes
Told me that he wanted help
Before his country dies

Although I couldn't feel the pain
I knew I had to try
Now I'm asking all of you
Help us save some lives

Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh
Where so many people are dying fast
And it sure looks like a mess
I've never seen such distress
Now won't you lend your hand
Try to understand
Relieve the people of Bangla Desh

Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh
Such a great disaster
I don't understand
But it sure looks like a mess
I never known such distress
Please don't turn away
I want to hear you say
Relieve the people of Bangla Desh

Relieve the people of Bangla Desh

Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh
Though it may seem so far
From where we all are
It's something we can't reject
That suffering I can't neglect
Now won't you give some bread
Get the starving fed
We got to relieve Bangla Desh

Relieve the people of Bangla Desh
We got to relieve Bangla Desh

Now won't you lend your hand
Try to understand
Relieve the people of Bangla Desh

    General CommentThis song is amazing, one of Harrison's best. I'm surprised of the lack of comments.

    General CommentWell grey Goose, here's mine. I very much agree with you regarding the quality of this song. Of course, it's not the lyrics that lift it to a higher level (but what can you expect from a song that's written to make people aware of a very acute and real problem happening at the time). Musically however, the song is very intriguing. The chorus melody goes in all kinds of unexpected directions and makes the song catchy as hell. I bought the vinyl single not long ago and I played the song over and over again.
    This song is really addictive and, indeed, one of the best Harrisongs around.
