"Grapevyne" as written by Dave Hall, Nichole Lynnette Gilbert and Andrea Gilbert....
I heard it through grapevyne
Boy, you know that I

I heard it through the grapevyne
That you ain't feelin' too fine
And I hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do really

Happened on the day I left
Since that day you haven't been the best
I hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do

You looked into my eyes
You said to me that night
That you would never cheat on me
Or break my heart

Inside I never knew
Your love was so untrue
I thought that I was your only
Boy, was I wrong, so wrong?

Never do somethin' that'll catch up to ya
You did me wrong and told me lies
Never do somethin' that you'll live to regret
You hurt me so bad, babe

Deep in my heart I feel sorry for ya
You had to lose a damn good thing
Lovin' me could have been good
Losing my love was a shame, baby

I heard it through the grapevyne
That you ain't feeling too fine
And I hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do really

Happened on the day I left
Since that day you haven't been the best
Hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do

We choose to play love games
We lose, we face the pain
Those lonely nights and that heartache
That empty space

I'll share with you my dreams
Those precious tender things
Everybody plays a fool
I guess I played my part for you

Never do somethin' that'll catch up to ya
You did me wrong and told me lies
Never do somethin' that you'll live to regret
You hurt me so bad, babe

Deep in my heart I feel sorry for ya
You had to lose a damn good thing
Lovin' me could have been good
Losing my love was a shame

I heard it through the grapevyne
That you ain't feeling too fine
And I hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do really

Happened on the day I left
Since that day you haven't been the best
Hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do

Oh, boy, you had my faith, you had my trust, you had my love
But now I have to take it back, it didn't work for us
And all I really needed was your lovin'
Yes, all I really needed was your lovin'

I was your lady and there's nothin' that I would not do
Now here's a 'Dear John' letter that I've written just for you
And all I really needed was your lovin'
Yes, all I really needed was your lovin', hey

Never do somethin' that'll catch up to ya
You did me wrong and told me lies
Never do somethin' that you'll live to regret
You hurt me so bad, now baby

Deep in my heart I feel sorry for you
You had to lose a damn good thing
Lovin' me could have been good
Losing my good love was such a shame

I heard it through the grapevyne
That you ain't feelin' too fine
And I hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do really

Happened on the day I left
Since that day you haven't been the best
Hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do

Heard it through, heard it through
I heard it through that grapevyne
Heard it through, heard it through
Grapevyne, grapevyne

I heard it through, heard it through
I heard it through that grapevyne
Hope that you feel much better
Yes, I do

    General CommentThis is a good song. It’s funny, but yet not. It’s about people in relationships who are not content with what they have. They lie to get their way and when they get their way entirely, they start feeling (as we say in Jersey) sickazell [sick as hell]! Lol.
    This song is what I call an “It’s over. Bye” song. There’s no hardness in her heart. And to some extent, she feels bad for him because he had to lose a “damn good thing”.
