Lyrics



Ooo I bet you're wonderin' 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 loved you more

It took me by surprise I must say

When I found out yesterday

Ooo I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine

Ooo I heard it through the grapevine

And I'm just about to lose my mind


Honey, honey yeah


You 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 found someone else

Instead I heard it through the grapevine

Not much longer would you be mine

Ooo I heard it through the grapevine

And I'm just about to lose my mind


Honey, honey yeah


People say you believe half from what you see

Non non none from what you hear

I can't help being confused

If it's true won't tell me here

Do you plan to let me go

For the other guy that you knew before?

Ooo I heard it through the grapevine


Not much longer would you be mine

Ooo I heard it through the grapevine

And I'm just about to loss my mind

Honey, honey, yeah


Ooo I heard it through the grapevine,

Not much longer would you be mine

Ooo I heard it through the grapevine,

And I'm just about to lose my mind


Ooo I heard it through the grapevine,

Not much longer would you be mine

Ahh I heard it through the grapevine,

And I'm just about to lose my mind, honey honey yeah
