Marvin Gaye

"I Heard It Through The Grapevine (Live in Montreux 1980)"

[Intro]
Woo

Hello?
Hello, Marvin?
Yeah, who is this? Frankie, what's happenin'?
Yeah, man, look here, somethin' funky is goin' down, man
What do you mean somethin' funky going down, man?
I'm over here working, man
Ah man, somethin' funky is going down
Look here, I just saw your lady go in the motel, man
With one of your best friends
It just didn't look right, Marvin
Speak up, man! What you gon' say about it, man?
Tryna let you know what's happenin'

Say what, Frankie? Don't tell me that, what'd you see?
Ah man, it's true, it's true, funky
Ah Frankie, don't tell my lady's like that, man
Ah man
Huh?
She just don't love you no more, man
I guess she don't love you no more
Look here, I got to now, man, I got to go
I'll talk to you later, alright? Later

Frankie, don't hang up; don't hang up, Frankie

[Verse 1]
Ooh, I bet you're wonderin' how I knew
'Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy you knew before
Between the two of us guys
You know I love you more

[Pre-Chorus]
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday

[Chorus]
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby, ooh

[Verse 2]
Now, I know 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

[Pre-Chorus]
Now, you could have told me yourself
That you loved someone else

[Chorus]
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine, baby
Now I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby, ooh
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby
Oh, Lord have mercy
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby, yeah yeah yeah yeah

[Bridge]
When I heard the news
I didn't know what to do, baby
Ah, it started to tear me up, broken up in my heart, baby
I didn't know how to handle the feeling, baby
I don't wanna believe it, baby, no I don't
Broke down and began to go on, baby
I broke down on being alone
Why, baby? Oh baby, oh why
Don't you love me no more, baby?
Don't you love me, baby?
Oh baby, ah baby
Ooh, I can't stand it
I, now listen here

[Verse 3]
Now, I know 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, baby

[Pre-Chorus]
Should have told me yourself
That you loved someone else, baby

[Chorus]
But instead I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
I heard it through the grapevine, baby
Girl, I'm just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey, yeah
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby, ooh
I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine, baby, yes I did
I heard it through the grapevine, hey

[Outro]
Heard it through the grapevine, y'all
