Oh, bet you're wonderin' 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 yesterday, ooh

I heard it through the grape vine
Not much longer, would you be mine?
Ooh, I heard it through the grape vine
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
Losin' 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, instead

I heard it through the grape vine
Not much longer, would you be mine?
Ooh, I heard it through the grape vine
And I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey yeah

People say, "You half of what you see
[Incomprehensible] of 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?

Ooh, I heard it through the grape vine
Not much longer, would you be mine?
Ooh, I heard it through the grape vine
And I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey yeah

Ooh, I heard it through the grape vine
Not much longer, would you be mine?
Ooh, I heard it through the grape vine
And I'm just about to lose my mind

Ooh, I heard it through the grape vine
Not much longer, would you be mine?
Aah, I heard it through the grape vine
And I'm just about to lose my mind, honey, honey
