Wish I had
Wish I had
Wish I had
Wish I had
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
But it don’t snow here
It stays pretty green
I’m going to make a lot of money
Then I’m going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I’d 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 please me
You know he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
I need a river
I could skate away on
You see I’m so hard to handle
I’m selfish and I’m sad
Now I lost the best baby
That I 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’d teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
My baby said goodbye
Wish I had
Wish I had
Wish I had
Wish I had
Wish I had
Wish I had
It’s coming on Christmas
They’re cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
Singing songs of joy and peace
I need a river
I could skate away on
Thanks to thudord
