River

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 on

It don't snow here
It stays pretty warm
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
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
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
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
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say good bye

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






songwriter: Joni Mitchell
