Billie Holiday

"River"

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Well, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
Stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to 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
You know he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Well, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
You know, I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Well, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

Well, 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

Well, it's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Well, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
