"River"

Joni Mitchell

 

KARINE : 

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 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 

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 

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 

I wish I had a river I could skate away on 

 

Oh, 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 

 

It's coming on Christmas 

They're cutting down trees 

They're putting up reindeer 

And singing songs of joy and peace 

I wish I had a river I could skate away on
