Someone could help me with the lyrics for Judy Small song "The Portrait of Margot Berard"?

English isn't my native language...

Thanks!


The Portrait of Margot Berard

The portrait of "Margot Berard" (at is) there on my wall
In a frame made specially to house (aren't safety) and (...)
A print of a painting by monsieur Pierre Auguste Renoir
The original hangs in the MET in Manhattan first floor

(She's the picture) (...) blue eyes (...) smile

The child of friend the artist Pierre Auguste Renoir

And a (...) frame on that wall in New York
Tells (of) Renoir (...) in the garden one day
She was weeping, a lesson in german that morning been hard
And to cheer her he painted the portrait of "Margot Berard"

When I went for a walk on that (...) in New York

And I found my (...) in the MET in Manhattan first floor
Face to face with the Renoir (impression) of "Margot Berard"

A portrait (...) (hope for the future) (is) Margot Berard

I'd forgotten I had this album & started an email to a friend who is a friend of Judy's

==================

from Judy Small's 1995 CD - Global Village

THE PORTRAIT OF MARGOT BERARD by Judy Small c.1994

The portrait of Margot Berard sits there on my wall
In a frame made especially to house her in safety and calm:
A print of the painting by Monsieur Pierre Auguste Renoir.
The original hangs in the Met in Manhattan, first floor.

She's the picture of innocence, blue eyes, fair curls and faint smile,
A four-year-old girl in a pinafore and a blue blouse,
The child of a friend of the artist Pierre Auguste Renoir.
The original hangs in the Met in Manhattan, first floor.

And a plaque which sits under that frame on that wall in New York
Tells of Renoir, who met a young girl in the garden one day.
She was weeping; her lesson in German that morn had been hard
And to cheer her he painted the portrait of Margot Berard.

When I went for a walk on that late summer day in New York,
I was just killing time with my friend; I knew nothing of art,
And I found myself there in the Met in Manhattan, first floor,
Face to face with the Renoir impression of Margot Berard.

I was stunned to find tears in my eyes as I gazed at her face.
The soul of the child shining forth in those eyes is so clear:
Paint on a canvas that thrilled me right down to my core.
A portrait of hope for the future is Margot Berard.

And a plaque which sits under that frame on that wall in New York
Tells of Renoir who met a young girl in the garden one day.
She was weeping; her lesson in German that morn had been hard,
And to cheer her he painted the portrait of Margot Berard.

So whenever I feel that this planet is governed by fools,
That the battle is lost and there's no point in hope anymore,
I remember that print sitting there in its frame on my wall.
The original hangs in the Met in Manhattan, first floor.

I remember that print sitting there in its frame on my wall.
The original hangs in the Met in Manhattan, first floor.

===================

The Met is the Metropolitan Museum of Art,
