LETRA

It's coming on Christmas,
They're cutting down trees.
They're putting up reindeers
Singing songs of joy and peace,
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

But it don't snow here,
Stays pretty green.
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And 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.
I wish I had a river I could skate away on.
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.
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.
And I've lost the best baby
That I've 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.
