It's comin' on Christmas,
They're cuttin' down trees.
They're puttin' up reindeer,
And singin' songs of joy and peace.
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on.

But it don't snow here.
It stays pretty green.
I'm gonna make a lot of money.
And then I'm gonna quit this crazy scene.
Oh, 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.
Oh, 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 at the knees.
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on.

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

I made my baby say "Goodbye."

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