    Lyrics

    It's coming on Christmas
    They're cutting down trees
    They're putting up reindeer
    And signing 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

    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

    Well she tried hard to help me
    You know, she put me at ease
    And she 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 I'm sad
    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

    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 say goodbye

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