i heard it through the grapevine lyrics – kaiser chiefs

i bet you’re wondering how i knew
about you’re plans to make me blue
with some other guy 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 yesterday

oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
not much longer would you be mine
oh 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
how much longer would you be my baby

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
because 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 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
how much longer would you be my baby
i heard it through the grapevine
how much longer would you be my baby

oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
not much longer would you be mine
oh 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
how much longer would you be my baby
i heard it through the grapevine
how much longer would you be my baby

people say believe half of what you see
son, and none of what you hear
i can’t help being confused
if it’s true please tell me dear
do you plan to let me go
for the other guy you loved before

oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
not much longer would you be mine
oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
oh i’m just about to lose my mind
oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
not much longer would you be mine
oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
oh i’m just about to lose my mind
oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
oh oh i heard it through the grapevine
