It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid
At christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade

But in our world of plenty, we should 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 your having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is a 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 wont be snow in africa this christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life

Where nothing ever grows
No rain or 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 the burning sun
Do they know it's christmas time at all?

Feed the world (x3)

Feed the world
Let thewm know it's christmas time (x5)

Feed the world
Let them know it's christmas time again

    The true meaning of christmas, after the christians stole it from the rest of us! I.e. Self-interest, here represented by the crowd pushing and shoving to get in the video, sell some albums

    I think the lyrics speak for themselves. The message is short so i have to add a bit extra. Ahh, that did it.
