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

Now it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lotta money
And 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
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

She tried hard to help me
She put me at ease
And she loved me so naughty
She 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, I'm sad
And I've gone and 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
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

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