I Heard It Through the Grapevine
Oh, I bet you're wondering how I knew
'Bout you're plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys, you know I love you more
It took me by surprise, I must say
When I found out yesterday

Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Hey, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah

Well, I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
'Cause losin' you would mean my life you see
'Cause you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you love someone else

Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Hey, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
But I can't help but be confused
If it's true won't you tell me, dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before

Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Hey, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
