Ohh______ I bet you're wonder how I knew
I chose hands to make be blue
With some other guys you knew before
You've been with two other guys, you know I love you more
It took me by surprise, I lost faith
When I found out yesterday

Won't you 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, well

(backing singers)
Through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby
Ooooh_____

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
All's 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, I heard it through the grapevine
And I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, well.

(backing singers)
Through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine, baby
Ooooh_____

(instrumental)

People say they heard it from what you see
Sun and night what you hear
But what I can't hide being confused
If it's true please tell me dear
Do you plan lettin' 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
Ohh, I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, well.

(backing singers)
Through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Honey, honey, I know

(backing singers)
Through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

That you're lettin' me go.

Said I heard it through the grapevine

(backing singers - fade out)
Through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
