River" Submit Correct Lyrics

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

But it don't snow here
It 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
And 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
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
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

Well, 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
Singin' songs of joy and peace

I wish, I had a river
I could skate away on

KUMAR, NILADRI / SINGH, TALVIN
