(bob geldof & midge ure) Performed by band aid Recorded on november 25, 1986
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
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 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 christmastime The greatest gift they'll get this year is life (oooh) 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
Feed the world
Let them know it's christmastime again
Feed the world Let them know it's christmastime again
