And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmastime

Taken from the charity song¬†Do They Know It’s Christmas by Band Aid (1984). The multi-million selling single was written in response to a severe famine in Ethiopia, and, along with several re-releases, has raised an estimated $150m into different causes. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone.

Now I know what a fool I’ve been
But if you kissed me now I know you’d fool me again
