I bet you're wondering how I knew.
Ah, what you're plans to make me blue.
With some other guy you knew before.
Between the two of us, you know I love you more.

It took me by surprise I must say, when I found out yesterday.
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
Not much longer would you be mine. (Not much longer would you be mine)
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
And I'm just about to lose my mind.

I know 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,
Oh, that you love someone else.
Instead I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
Not much longer would you be mine. (Not much longer would you be mine)
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
Oh, and I am, and I am just about lose my mind.

People say believe half of what you see.
Oh, and none of what you hear.
Whoa, I jus' can't help being confused.
If it's true please tell me dear.

Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you left me for
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the
Grapevine)
Not much longer would you be mine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard
It)
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I
Heard it)
Oh, heard it through the grapevine.(Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard
It)
I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard
It)
Woo, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I
Heard it)
I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard
It)
Oh, heard it throught the grapevine.(Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard
