Oo, Bet you're wond'ring how I knew
About your plans to make me blue
With some other guy that 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 yester-day.
I heard it through the grapevine,
Not much longer would you be mine.
Oo, 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.
Losing 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.
People say you "Hear from what you see,
Na na not from what you hear."
I can't help bein' confused;
If it's true, won't you tell me dear?
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy that you knew before?
