It's comin' on Christmas
They're cuttin' down trees
Puttin' up reindeer
And singin' 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
Gonna make a lot of money
Then I'm 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
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 I know
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

I was so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm 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
Teach my feet to fly
Wish I had a river
That I could skate away on
'Cause I made my baby say goodbye

It's comin' on Christmas
They're cuttin' down trees
Puttin' up reindeer
And singin' 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
Teach my feet to fly
Wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye
