Do They Know It's Christmas


by Band Aid (Goldef/Ure)
 V1:	It's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid
At Christmas it's time we let in light and we banish hate
And in our world of plenty, we can spread a smile of joy
Put your arms around the world at Christmas time

F - - - / G - - - / C - - - /   /  x4  /                                   [1 & 3]
F - - - / G - - - / C - - - / F - - - / Dm - - - / G - - - / C - - - /   //

 V2:	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 dreaded fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter stream of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring it,
Are the clanging chimes of tears
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
[2]
F - - - / Dm - - - / G - - - / C - - - / F - - - / Dm - - - / G - - - / C - - - /   //

 V3:	And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Well nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

  B:	Here's to you, crazy plans for everyone
Here's to them, underneath the burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Am - - - / G - - - /  x2  / F - - - / G - - - //

  T:	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
Feed the world, let them know it's Christmas time

C - - - / F - C - /   /  Dm - - - //
