Annett Louisan – River lyrics
It's coming on Christmas,
They're cuttin' down trees
They're puttin' up reindeer
Singing songs of joy and peace,
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

But it don't snow here,
Stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
Then I'm gonna quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long,
I would 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,
You know, he put me at ease
He loved me so naughty,
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
I've lost the best baby
That I ever had
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

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

It's coming on Christmas,
They're cuttin' down trees
They're puttin' up reindeer
Singing songs of joy and peace,
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

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