I Heard It Through The Grapevine

Ooh, I bet you’re wondering how I knew
‘bout you’re plans to make me blue
with some other guy that 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…

[Chorus:]
I heard it through the grapevine
not much longer would you be mine.
Oh I heard it through the grapevine,
Oh and I’m just about to lose my mind.
Honey, honey yeah.

I know that a man ain’t supposed to cry,
but these tears I can’t hold inside.
Losin’ you would end my life you see,
cause you mean that much to me.
You could have told me yourself
that you love someone else.
Instead…

[Chorus]

People say believe half of what you see,
son, and none of what you hear.
I can’t help bein’ confused
if it’s true please tell me dear?
Do you plan to let me go
for the other guy you loved before?
Don’t you know…

[Chorus]
