Chris Martin:
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 Christmastime

Robbie Williams:
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

Fran Healy:
Where the only water flowing

Fran Healy & Sugarbabes:
Is the bitter sting of tears

Fran Healy & Justin Hawkins:
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom

Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

Will Young & Jamelia:
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life

Ms Dynamite & Beverly Knight:
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow

Group of ten and Joss Stone:
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Tom Chaplin (Keane):
Here's to you

Justin Hawkins (Darkness):
Raise a glass for everyone

Dizzee Rascal:
Spare a thought this yuletide for the deprived
If the table was turned would you survive

Here's to them

Justin Hawkins (Darkness):
Underneath that burning sun

Dizzee Rascal:
You ain't gotta feel guilt just selfless
Give a little help to the helpless

Joss Stone & Justin Hawkins:
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Tom Chaplin:
Feed the world

Tom Chaplin & Chris Martin:
Feed the world

Tom Chaplin & Chris Martin & Sugababes:
Feed the world

Tom Chaplin & Chris Martin & Sugababes:
Feed the world

Everyone in full chorus line.
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again - repeated

Group of ten:
Feed the world

Everyone in full chorus line.
Feed the world - repeated to end

Joss Stone
Ad libs over outro
