The Official BBC Children in Need Medley is a medley of songs released by the Children in Need. It was written and created by Peter Kay.

Lyrics

Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it!
If you look around
The whole world's coming together now,
Every healthy smile is hunger and stiff for another child
Now tell me
Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it!
All the children of the world should be
Lovin' each other wholeheartedly.
Yes it's alright, take my message to your brother and tell him twice
Now tell me
Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it!
Can you feel it, can you feel it, can you feel it!
If you wake up and don't want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
You'll see things in a different way.
Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.
Jai Ho, don't you look back
Jai Ho, don't you look back
(Jai Ho) You are the reason that I breathe, (Jai Ho)
You are the reason that I still believe, (Jai Ho)
You are my destiny,
Jai Ho! Uh-uh-uh-oh!
(Jai Ho) No there is nothing that can stop us (Jai Ho)
Nothing can ever come between us, (Jai Ho)
So come and dance with me,
Jai Ho! (oohh)
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down,
Never forget where your coming from
Never pretend that it's all real
Someday soon this will all be someone else's dream
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na, Hey Jude!
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na, Hey Jude!
So throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year see me right!
So throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year see me right!
So throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year see me right!
So throw those curtains wide!
One day like this a year see me right!
