A Not-Quite-Traditional Christmas Song

16joniriversarah1

Some holiday songs have not yet been done to death, and this is one of those refreshing ones that has not, but it fits finely enough with winter happenings. Written by the great Joni Mitchell and re-interpreted by the great Sarah McLachlan, this is one of those melancholy pauses in the parade of holiday insanity.

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
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…
