The song for Bangladesh

My friend came to me, with sadness in his eyes

He told me that he wanted help

Before his country dies

Although I couldn’t feel the pain, I knew I had to try

Now I’m asking all of you

To help us save some lives

 Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh

Where so many people are dying fast

And it sure looks like a mess

I’ve never seen such distress

Now won’t you lend your hand and understand

Relieve the people of Bangla Desh…….

Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh

Such a great disaster – I don’t understand

But it sure looks like a mess

I’ve never known such distress

Now please don’t turn away, I want to hear you say

Relieve the people of Bangla Desh

Relieve Bangla Desh

 Bangla Desh, Bangla Desh

Now it may seem so far from where we all are

It’s something we can’t neglect

It’s something I can’t neglect

Now won’t you give some bread to get the starving fed

We’ve got to relieve Bangla Desh

Relieve the people of Bangla Desh

We’ve got to relieve Bangla Desh

Relieve the people of Bangla Desh
