I bet you're wondering how I knew 'bout your 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 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, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey yeah

People say we hear from what you see
Say, “Na na not from 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 that you love before?

Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Baby I heard it through the grapevine
Oh I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey yeah

Honey, honey I know that you let me go
Said I heard it through the grapevine
Hey, through the grapevine
