Do they know it's Christmas? Band Aid - video e testo da stampare

Do they know it’s Christmas?

Una bellissima canzone di Natale scritta da Bob Geldof e Midge Ure nel 1984 allo scopo di raccogliere fondi per combattere la carenza di cibo in Etiopia.
Alla fine del 1984, un reportage della BBC portò all’attenzione pubblica la carestia che aveva colpito l’Etiopia nel periodo 1984-1985. Il cantante irlandese Bob Geldof, che aveva visto il reportage, ne fu talmente colpito da decidere di produrre un disco i cui ricavati avrebbero potuto alleviare la situazione. Conscio che avrebbe potuto fare ben poco da solo contattò Midge Ure del gruppo Ultravox ed insieme scrissero il brano Do They Know It’s Christmas? In breve tempo Geldof mise insieme numerosi artisti, uniti sotto il nome collettivo di Band Aid.

It’s Christmas time, and there’s no need to be afraid
At Christmas time, we let in light and 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 and pray for the other ones
At Christmas time, it’s hard but while you’re having fun
There’s a world outside your window, and it’s a world of dread and fear
Where a kiss of love can kill you, and there’s death in every tear
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight we’re reaching out and touching you

Bring peace and joy this Christmas to West Africa
A song of hope where there’s no hope tonight, ooh
Why is coming first deadly feared?
Why is to touch to be scared?
How can they know it’s Christmas time at all?

Here’s to you
Raise a glass to everyone
Here’s to them
And all their years to come
Can they know it’s Christmas time at all?

Feed the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Heal the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Heal the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Heal the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Heal the world, let them know it’s Christmas time again
Heal the world
