Marvin Gaye – I Heard It Through the Grapevine Lyrics
Ooh, I bet you're wondering how I knew
About your 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, baby
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...
Honey, Honey, I know
That you're letting me go
Said, "I heard it through the grapevine"
Oh, heard it thought the grapevine
