River Submit Correct Lyrics

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing 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 going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Oh, I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
He put me at ease
Lord, 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
That I ever had
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

Oh, I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye

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
