It's coming on christmas
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.

But it don't snow here
It 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 long,
I would teach my feet to fly.
I wish I had a river,
I could skate away on.
I made my baby cry.

Tried hard to help me,
And you put me at ease.
Loved me so naughty,
Made me weaking 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.
I've gone and lost the best baby,
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.
Wish I had a river,
I could skate away on.
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.
