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 won't snow here
It'll stay pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And then I'm gonna 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 to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
No, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
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 upset
Now I've gone and lost the best baby that I ever had
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 could skate away on

I made my baby say goodbye

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