ESL English Lesson: Do they know it’s Christmas?
David Robinson

‘Do they know it’s Christmas?’ the song that was made famous by Band Aid to help ‘feed the world’ in the 1980s has just been re-recorded. It is in response to the plea to help raise money to help fight the devastating disease Ebola, which has ravaged through Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, leaving thousands dead in its wake.

The track has been given a 21st century makeover. Whereas the original song was to ‘feed the world’ the new song hopes to ‘heal it’.

The lyric “Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears”, has been replaced by “Where a kiss of love can kill you – and there’s death in every tear”. This is in reference to the way Ebola is transmitted through physical contact and bodily fluids.
