Do They Know It's Christmas Lyrics

It's Christmas time, and 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 to 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
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 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 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
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...

This song is about trying to see that there is another side to the world, and that people do live in poverty. We are all very lucky to be born in a place where we have everything, yet some people are born with nothing. It's not their fault. This song tries to get us to do something about this. One person alone can't change the world, but together we can.

Yes there also people who can't feed in some part of the world but its not the same case in Africa during that time many people in Africa died everyday because of famine and i think there no question with that.....
