Temperance – Do They Know It's Christmas? lyrics
(B. Geldof, M. Ure, with alterations by Temperance)
It's Christmas-time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas-time, we let in love and we banish hate
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 (ooh-hoo), prayer 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
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears (uhm, hmm)
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
(Oh-oh) The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
(Is life, ooh-wo-ooh-wo-oh-oh-oh-oh)
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 that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas-time at all?
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas-time
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas-time
