Thread Name: Lyr Req: Turning of the World (Ruth Pelham)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Need words to song Turning of the Wo
It is on Pelham's 'Look to the People' Flying Fish LP 399 [1986]. She noted that it was an example of what Lee Hays called a 'zipper song':

Let us sing this song
For the (turning, loving, healing, dreaming, singing) of the world
That we may (turn, love, heal, dream, sing) as one
With every voice, with every song
We will move this world along
And our lives will feel the echo
Of our (turning, loving, healing, dreaming, singing)

Why on earth is authorship claimed for the Berlin Student Chorus in the link given by Ed? It was copyrighted by Pelham in 1982 - Silver Crane Music ASCAP.
