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 christmas time

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 dreaded 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 won't 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 your glass for everyone
Here's to them
Underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's christmas time at all?
Yeaaah

Feed the world
Let them know it's christmas time and
Feed the world
Let them know it's christmas time and
Feed the world
Let them know it's christmas time and
Feed the world
Let them know it's christmas time and
Feed the world
Let them know it's christmas time and
Feed the world
Let them know it's christmas time
I hope you like this song even though it's not christmas!

    "tonight thank god it's them instead of you"? Why does that line not naturally occur to everyone as insensitive & out of touch. Why would you thank god anyone is suffering in contrast to your own safety & comfort? Horrible!!!

    Share our love to others esp those that aren't fortunate like us. Take a minute to pray for those that need help.

    In some countries, people couldn't celebrate christmas due to extreme poverty which results to starvation, malnutrition and death of people; person after a person... We should help those people through charity... Let's give it as a gift... We should thank god that we are able to eat delicious foods...
