Explore the new lyrics for Band Aid 30’s ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’!

Band Aid 30 have released the newly reworked lyrics for the new version of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ for Christmas this year.


The new version of ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ is almost completely different to the original as it’s been rewritten to reflect the Ebola crisis in West Africa.

The money raised from the new single will be going to help stop the spread of this virus.

It has also been confirmed Band Aid 30 will premiere the single on X Factor this weekend.

Read the lyrics of the reworked single below:

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, 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

No peace and joy this Christmas in West Africa

The only hope they’ll have is being alive

Where to comfort is to fear

Where to touch is to be scared

How can they know it’s Christmas time at all

Here’s to you

Raise a glass to everyone

And here’s to them

And all their years to come

Let them know it’s Christmas time after all

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

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

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