i heard it through the grapevine lyrics – temptations

i bet you’re wondering how i knew.
ah, what you’re plans to make me blue.
with some other guy you knew before.
between the two of us, you know i love you more.

dennis:
it took me by surprise i must say, when i found out yesterday.
oh, i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it through the grapevine)
not much longer would you be mine. (not much longer would you be mine)
oh, i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it through the grapevine)
and i’m just about to lose my mind.

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.

eddie:
you could have told me yourself,
oh, that you love someone else.
instead i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it through the grapevine)
not much longer would you be mine. (not much longer would you be mine)
oh, i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it through the grapevine)
oh, and i am, and i am just about lose my mind.

ah, boom, boom, boom,…(ect.)

dennis:
people say believe half of what you see.
oh, and none of what you hear.
whoa, i jus’ can’t help being confused.
if it’s true please tell me dear.

eddie:
do you plan to let me go
for the other guy you left me for
don’t you know that i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it through the grapevine)
not much longer would you be mine. (heard it, heard it, i heard it, yes i heard it)
oh, i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it, heard it, i heard it, yes i heard it)
oh, heard it through the grapevine.(heard it, heard it, i heard it, yes i heard it)
i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it, heard it, i heard it, yes i heard it)
woo, i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it, heard it, i heard it, yes i heard it)
i heard it through the grapevine. (heard it, heard it, i heard it, yes i heard it)
oh, heard it throught the grapevine.(heard it, heard it, i heard it, yes i heard it)
