I Heard It Through The Grapevine
Gladys Knight & The Pips Lyrics


I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
Baby, baby, baby 'bout your plans to make me blue
With some other girl you knew before (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Between the two of us girls you know I loved you more
It took me by surprise I must say (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
When I found out yesterday (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine (oh, I 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 (oh, I heard it through the grapevine)
Oh I'm just about, just about, just about to lose my mind
Oh yes, I am, oh yes, I am, oh yes, I am
Baby won't you listen to me

Boy take a good look at these tears of mine
Baby, baby these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Because you mean that much to me
You could've told me yourself (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
That you love somebody else (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)

Instead I heard it through the grapevine (oh, I heard it through the grapevine)
Oh, not much longer would you be mine (not much longer would you be mine)
Oh, I heard it, yes, I heard it (heard it through the grapevine)
Oh, just about, just about, just about, to lose my mind
Oh yes, I am, oh yes, I am, oh yes, I am

Go, go
Go, I gotta go
Go, go
You gotta let me go
Go, go, go
I gotta go whoa, whoa, whoa

Say believe half of what you see
Oh, ho, and none of what you hear

Baby baby, but I just can't help bein' confused
If it's true please baby, won't ya tell me dear
Oh, do you plan to let me go (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
For the other girl you loved before? (ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh)
Don't ya know that I heard through the grapevine (oh, I heard it through the grapevine)
Not much longer would you be mine (not much longer would you be mine)
Don't ya know that I heard it, yes I heard it (heard it through the grapevine)
I heard it, I heard it (heard it through the grapevine)

I bet you're wonderin' how I knew, baby, baby, baby
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other girl you knew before
Between the two of us girls
You know I loved 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
Don't you know I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about, just about, just about to lose my mind
Oh yes, I am, oh yes, I am, oh yes, I am
Baby won't you listen to me
Boy take a good look at these tears of mine
Baby, baby these tears I can't hold inside
Losin' you would end my life you see
Because you mean that much to me
You could've told me yourself
That you love somebody else
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
Oh, not much longer would you be mine
Don't you know I heard it, (heard it) yes I heard it,
Heard it through the grapevine
Oh just about just about just about
To lose my mind
Oh yes I am, Oh yes I am, Oh yes I am
Gooo,
Go, I gotta go
Go, go
You gotta let me go
Go, go, go
I gotta go whoa, whoa, whoa
Say believe half of what you see
Oh, ho, and none of what you hear
Baby baby, but I just can't help bein' confused
If it's true please baby, won't ya tell me dear
Oh, do you plan to let me go
For the other girl you loved before?
Don't ya know that I heard through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Don't ya know that I heard it, yes I heard it
heard it through the grapevine

Still my favorite version. Gladys is in her own category. Magnificent!

Félix

That bassline is BRUTAL

Franklin Wilson

James Jamerson's bass playing is technical and as an added bonus it gets your feet moving.....brilliant

Dan Crowley

He was unbelievable.

Gail Gruenburg

That bass in the beginning always gets me. Gladys has it all!

Apprentice of the Leonine

James Jamerson was unreal. He could hear a rhythm in his head, play a counter-rhythm against it, and it would always fit.

Zedwoman

Gladys Knight is one of the greatest soul singers.

Serene Amani

@monica bella I love Gladys. She, Patti, and Aretha have been my favorites since grade school. BUT ARETHA FRANKLIN is the QUEEN OF SOUL!

monica bella

GLADYS KNIGHT is The Queen of Soul !

Irene Vitarelli

OF. ALL. TIME.
