Dancing for Renoir   

down by the water, he found her sitting there
he took in her beauty, as the wind blew through her hair
and slowly she stood up, and turned herself around
the face of an angel, he could hardly make a sound
he said oh yeah

he asked her to go, with him into town
to look at the paintings, of an artist he had found
she thought he was joking, but still she went along
he asked her, her name, she said suzanne valedon
he said oh yeah

hold me now
until i go to sleep
then from far away
back to those days i'll see
but if you must find me
i'll tell you where i'll be
i'll be dancing for renoir in my dreams

he showed her a portrait, of madame charpentier
as she sat with her children, so happily at play
they went to the ball, at the moulin de la galette
and walked through the flowers, in the garden of monet
she said oh yeah

can you remember, how it felt to be a child
not a care in the world, just young and free and wild
suzanne can you help me, i need someone to dance
i promise they'll remember, the day you took this chance
she said oh yeah

hold me now
until i go to sleep
then from far away
back to those days i'll see
but if you must find me
i'll tell you where i'll be
i'll be dancing for renoir in my dreams

she danced with her partner, they barely touched the ground
she flew through the air, as he twirled her round and round
the painter was brilliant, the canvas caught it all
she'll always remember, her dance at bougival
she said oh yeah

hold me now
until i go to sleep
then from far away
back to those days i'll see
but if you must find me
i'll tell you where i'll be
i'll be dancing for renoir in my dreams
