Marvin Gaye singing "I Heard it Through the Grapevine" Acappella

Expression Meaning Example
I must say I'm obliged to admit You certainly look tired, I must say.
To find out To discover, to learn Don't worry, the police will find out who did it
The grapevine An informal person-to-person means of circulating information or gossip The grapevine tells me that you're getting married soon?



I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE, by Marvin Gaye
(Written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong)

Ooh, I bet you're wondering how I knew
About you're 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.
Don't you know that...

(Chorus:)

I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine.
Oh I heard it through the grapevine,
Oh and I'm just about to lose my mind.
Honey, honey, well.



I know at 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 love someone else.
Instead...

(Chorus)

People say believe half of what you see,
Son, and none of what you hear.
But I can't help bein' confused
If it's true please tell me dear?
Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you loved before?
Don't you know...

(Chorus)
