Creedence Clearwater Revival - I Heard It Through the Grapevine

Oo Bet youґre wondґring how I knew ґbout 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. Oo

I heard it through the grapevine not much longer would you be mine.
Oo I heard it through the grapevine and Iґm just about to lose my mind.
Honey, honey yeah.

You know that a man ainґt supposed to cry, but these tears I canґt hold
Inside. Losinґ you would end my life you see, ґcause you mean that much to
Me. You could have told me yourself that you found someone else. Instead,


People say you learn from what you see, na na not from what you hear.ґ I
Canґt help beinґ confused; if itґs true, wonґt you tell me dear? Do you
Dare let me go for the other guy that you knew before? Oo,
