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

Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah

I heard it through the grapevine
How much longer would you be my baby

I know a man ain't supposed to cry
But these tears I can't hold inside
Losing you would end my life, you see
Because 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, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah

I heard it through the grapevine
How much longer would you be my baby
I heard it through the grapevine
How much longer would you be my baby

Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah

I heard it through the grapevine
How much longer would you be my baby
I heard it through the grapevine
How much longer would you be my baby

People say believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear
I 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 loved before

Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind
Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine

Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, I'm just about to lose my mind
Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, oh, I heard it through the grapevine
