Song Lyrics

[Various lead singers = Normal, Bono = Bold]

It’s Christmastime
There’s no need to be afraid
At Christmastime
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

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime
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 Christmastime
The greatest gift they’ll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it’s Christmastime at all?

Here’s to you / Raise a glass for everyone
Here’s to them / Underneath that burning sun
Do they know it’s Christmastime at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmastime again

This record was recorded on the 25th of November 1984
It’s now 8 a. m. on the morning of the 26th
We’ve been here 24 hours and I think it’s time we went home
So from me, Bob Geldof, and Midge we’d say good morning to you all
And a million thanks to everyone on the record
Have a lovely Christmas, bye.
