I Heard It Through the Grapevine
Marvin Gaye Lyrics


Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys
You know I loved you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don'tcha 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 heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be mine baby, ooh)

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

Honey, honey, yeah
(I heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be mine, baby, ooh)

People say, "Believe half of what you see
Son, and none of what you hear"
But I can't help but be confused
If it's 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
Baby, I heard it through the grapevine
Ooh, just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
(I heard it through the grapevine)
(Not much longer would you be mine, baby yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Honey, honey, I know (I heard it through the grapevine)
That you're letting me go (Not much longer would you be mine, baby)
Said I heard it through the grapevine (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Ooh, ooh I heard it through the grapevine
