Do they know it's Christmas?   Band Aid

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
Ooh 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
他們知道現在是聖誕節嗎?   援非聯合樂團

聖誕時節已來到
不要害怕
在這聖誕時節
我們迎接光明,驅走陰暗
在我們豐饒的世界裡
展現歡樂的笑容

在這聖誕時節,張開雙臂擁抱世界
做個禱告

在聖誕時節為別人禱告並不容易
但當你尋歡作樂時
在你的窗外有另一個世界
那是一個憂懼與驚恐的世界
那兒唯一流動的水是刺痛的淚水
那兒響起的聖誕鈴聲
是死亡的鐘聲
今晚感謝上帝,是他們代替了你受苦

今年的聖誕節,非洲不下雪
他們今年最好的禮物就是活著
那兒寸草不生
沒有雨水,河水不再流
他們知道現在是聖誕節嗎?

(敬你!)為大家舉杯
(敬他們!)在那灼熱的太陽下
他們知道現在是聖誕節嗎?
救助這世界,救助這世界,救助這世界
讓他們再次明白聖誕節到了

救助這世界
讓他們再次明白聖誕節到了


數十位巨星聯合慈善義唱的歌曲,最著名的要屬美國歌手的"We are the world",但那首歌曲的誕生靈感,卻是源自於英國的這首"Do they know it's Christmas?"。

為了援助非洲飢荒難民,當時英國歌壇的大牌歌手如文化俱樂部、杜蘭杜蘭合唱團、保羅揚、菲爾柯林斯等幾乎全員到齊,由於歌曲的性質及首次
創舉,單曲發行後自然是轟動全球,並且啟發了世界各地的音樂工作者,各類的慈善義唱風氣至今依然不息。
