Its coming on christmas
Theyre cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it dont snow here
It stays pretty green
Gonna make a lot of money
Then Im gonna quit this crazy scene
And I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

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

You tried hard to help me
And you put me at ease
Then loved me so naughty
Made me weak in my knees
And wish I had a river
That I could skate away on

Im so hard to handle
Im selfish and Im sad
Now I lost the best baby
That I ever had
And I wish I had a river
That I could skate away on

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

Its coming on christmas
Theyre cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
But I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

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