It's Christmas time, there's no need to be a-fra-aid

4 4 -6 -6 -6 -6 6 6 -5 -5 6 6 6 -6

At Christmas time, we let in light and we banish sh-ade

6 -6 7 -8 7 8 -8 7 6 6 7 7 -8 7 -6

There's a world outside your windo-w

7 7 7 7 -8 7 6 -6

And it's a world of dread and fear

7 7 7 7 7 -8 -7 -6 6

Where the only water flow-i--ng

7 7 7 -8 7 6 -6

Is the bitter sting of tears

7 7 7 7 7 7 -7 -6 6

And the Christmas bells that ring the-re

7 7 7 -8 7 6 -6

Are the clanging chimes of doom

-9 -9 -9 -9 -9 -9 -8 8 -9 8 8

Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

7 7 7 7 7 7 -7 -6 6 -6 -6 6 6

And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time

7 7 7 7 -8 -7 -6 6 -6 6 (8 -8 7)

The greatest gift they'll get this year is life (oh-oh-oh)

7 7 7 7 -8 -7

Where nothing ever grows

7 7 -8 7 6 -6

No rain nor rivers flow

-9 8 7 6 -9 8 7 -8 7

Do they know it's Christmas time at all?


8 8 8 -8 7 -8 8 -8 7 -7

Here's to you, raise a glass for everyone

8 8 8 -8 7 -8 8 -8 7 -7

Here's to them, underneath that burning sun

-9 8 7 6 -9 8 7 -8 7

Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Feed the wo-r-ld

-6 6 -5 5 -5 5 -4 4 4

Let them know it's Christmas time again

5 -6 6 -5 5 -4 6

And two eyes made out of coal


6 5 -5 6 7

Frost-y the snow-man

-7 7 -8 7 -7 -6 6

Is a fair-y tale they say

-7 7 -8 7 -7 -6 -6 6 7 5

He was made of snow but the child-ren know

5 -6 6 -5 5 -4 4

How he came to life one day


6 -6 -6 7 7 -7 -6 6

There must have been some mag-ic in

5 -5 -6 6 -5 5

That old silk hat they found

4 -4 -4 6 6 -7 -7 -8

For when they placed it on his head

-7 7 -8 7 -7 -6 6

He be-gan to dance a-round


6 6 5 -5 6 7 -7 7 -8 7 -7 -6 6

Oh, Frost-y the snow-man was a-live as he could be

-7 7 -8 7 -7 -6 -6 6 7 5

And the child-ren say he could laugh and play

5 -6 6 -5 5 -4 4

Just the same as you and me
