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…

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.


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…
