031. Do they know it's christmas

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 dreath 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
(Oooh) 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
Spare a thought thisyule-tide forthe the prived
If the table was turned would you survive?
(Here's to them) underneath that burning sun
You ain’t got-ta feel good, just self-less
For it-tle help to the help-less
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
