I wish I had a river I could skate away on?

What song are these lyrics from, and who is the artists? A female sings it, if that helps. Thanks :]

Update:

Or Canada...but thanks for the input, Cale :] I'll check it out and see if it is Bjork.

    Joni Mitchell › River

    Its coming on christmas

    Theyre cutting down trees

    Theyre putting up reindeer

    And singing songs of joy and peace

    Oh I wish I had a river

    I could skate away on

    But it dont snow here

    It stays pretty green

    Im going to make a lot of money

    Then Im 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

    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

    Im so hard to handle

    Im selfish and Im sad

    Now Ive gone and lost the best baby

    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 would teach my feet to fly

    Oh I wish I had a river

    I made my baby say goodbye

    Its coming on christmas

    Theyre cutting down trees

    Theyre putting up reindeer

    And singing songs of joy and peace

    I wish I had a river

    I could skate away on
