Doug Anthony All Stars – I Heard It Through The Grapevine lyrics

I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Out of the two of us guys you know I love you more
It took me by surprise, I must say
When I found you yesterday

Dear God, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
No, no, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey honey, yeah

(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
Honey, honey, I know
(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
That you're letting me go
(Heard it through the grapevine)

Now 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
Because you mean that much to me
You could have told me yourself
That you loved someone else

Instead, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
No, no, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey honey, yeah

(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
Honey, honey, I know
(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
That you're letting me go
(Heard it through the grapevine)

You can't hide what I've seen
And you can't hide what I've heard
But I can't stand to be confused
So if it's true you'd better tell me, dear
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?

Dear God, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
No, no, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey honey, yeah

(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
Honey, honey, I know
(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
That you're letting me go
(Heard it through the grapevine)
Honey, honey, I know
(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
That you're letting me go
(Heard it through the grapevine)
Honey, honey, I know
(Heard it through the grapevine, not much longer would you be my baby)
That you're letting me go
