I Heard It Through the Grapevine (The Slits)

Ooh, I bet you're wondering how I knew 'bout 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. 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. I 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 love someone else. 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. People say believe half of what you see, son, and none of what you hear. 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 knew before? 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.
