It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer singing songs of joy and peace

[Chorus]
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
And then I'm going to quit this crazy scene

[Chorus]

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly high

[Chorus]

I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees

[Chorus]

But 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

[Chorus]

Oh I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly high

[Chorus]

I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer singing songs of joy and peace

[Chorus]
