River

by: Sarah McLachlan

It's comin' on Christmas,
They're cuttin' down trees.
They're puttin' up reindeer,
Singin' songs of joy and peace.
Oh, I wish I had a River,
I could skate away on.

But it doesn't snow here,
It stays 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.

Chorus
I wish I had a River so long,
Teach my feet to fly high
Oh, I wish I had a River,
I could skate away on.
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.
Oh, I wish I had a River,
I could skate away on.

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.
Oh, I wish I had a River,
I could skate away on.

Chorus
Oh, I wish I had a River so long,
I would, teach my feet to fly high
Oh, I wish I had a River,
I could skate away on.
I made my baby say goodbye.

It's comin' on Christmas,
They're cuttin' down trees,
They're puttin' up reindeer,
And singin' songs of joy and peace.
Oh, I wish I had a River,
I could skate away on.
