I wish I had a river

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
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly

Robert Downey Jr. plays Joni Mitchell's 'River' in Ally McBeal's episode (4x6, Tis The Season)
The song from Mitchell's famous album Blue (1971) has been covered by many artists including e.g. Holly Cole, Sarah McLachlan, Indigo Girls and Shawn Colvin.
