River Submit Correct Lyrics

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

It don't snow here
Stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And 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 how to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

You tried hard to help me
You put me at ease
You loved me so naughty
It made me weak in the knees
Oh 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
That I've 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 how to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
And 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
