Lyrics

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

It doesn't really snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And then quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I could teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
He put me at ease
He loved me so good it made me weak in the knees
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby I've ever had
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I could teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
