It's coming on Christmas

  Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm going to make a lot of money
 
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene

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

Made me weak in the knees

Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm selfish and I'm sad

Now I've gone and lost the best baby that I ever had

I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I made my baby say goodbye
