I bet you're wonderin' 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
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine
An' 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
That you loved someone else
Instead, I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine
An' I'm just about to lose my mind

People say believe half of what you see
An' none of what you hear
I just can't help bein' confused
If it is true, please tell me, dear

Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?
Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine

I heard it through the grapevine
I heard it through the grapevine
I heard it through the grapevine
I heard it through the grapevine
I heard it through the grapevine
