Michael McDonald - I Heard It Through The Grapevine Lyrics




I bet you're wondering how I knew.
Ah, what you're plans to make me blue.
With some other guy you knew before.
Between the two of us, you know I love you more.

It took me by surprise I must say, when I found out yesterday.
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
Not much longer would you be mine. (Not much longer would you be mine)
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
And I'm just about to lose my mind.

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.

You could have told me yourself,
Oh, that you love someone else.
Instead I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
Not much longer would you be mine. (Not much longer would you be mine)
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
Oh, and I am, and I am just about lose my mind.

People say believe half of what you see.
Oh, and none of what you hear.
Whoa, I jus' can't help being confused.
If it's true please tell me dear.

Do you plan to let me go
For the other guy you left me for
Don't you know that I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it through the grapevine)
Not much longer would you be mine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard it)
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard it)
Oh, heard it through the grapevine.(Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard it)
I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard it)
Woo, I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard it)
I heard it through the grapevine. (Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard it)
Oh, heard it through the grapevine.(Heard it, heard it, I heard it, yes I heard)

    I like it a sassy funkified version of the song . I bet sly stone and his family could have done a funky version of this back in 69 or 70. To bad that they didnt take a stab at it.

    I bet you wonderin' how I knew
    'Bout your plans to make me blue
    With some other guy you knew before
    Between 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 I heard it through the grapevine,
    Not much longer would you be mine
    uhh uhh heard it through the grapevine
    Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

    Honey Honey

    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
    You could have told me yourself
    That you loved someone else
    Instead

    I heard it through the grapevine
    Not much longer would you be mine
    Ohh I heard it thought the grapevine
    Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

    Honey Honey

    People say believe half of what you see
    Son, and none of what your hear
    But I can't help but be 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 that I heard it through the grapevine,
    Not much longer would you be mine
    uhh uhh heard it through the grapevine
    Oh I'm just about to lose my mind

    Paulo Costa

    @Paulo O. Eu respondo por mim: Não vejo novela desde 1986, a última foi _Rock Santeiro,_ e quanto ao _Michael Mcdonald,_ eu conheço ele dos anos 70, quando ele pertencia a banda _The Doobie Brothers._

  36. Chris H

    I think McDonald's covers of a lot of great old songs stinks song for song. . . the old ones are so superior to his kitsch that he ought to hang it up and go do a tour with the Doobies. Seriously, every one of his covers of those classic old songs is a dud.

    Brometheus

    Chris H I think people would listen to him sing anything lol

    @Mark Székesfehérvár isso👍

    Vinicius Passos Coutinho

    a melhor versão dessa musica é do creedence...essa do mcdonald ficou em segundo...e quem fez a musica (marvin gaye) em terceiro hehehe

    Jonas Junior

    Na verdade ela é de um negro, Marvin Gaye ✌🏻🙂 Mas verdade, versão muito boa esta, a do Creedence Clearwater Revival também é muito boa

  46. Anthony Davis

    I can’t think of any other white guy who has this much soul. I love Michael McDonald.

  55. Marvin G. Harden

    love that he's giving honor to Marvin's song in a respectful way. Mr. M McDonald U nailed the hell out of this and I knew you w
    could love ur solo music. my brother from another mother!!!

    Dia Desales

    Marvin G. Harden yes he’s grooving

  56. Tia Flowers

    to good

  57. Matt O'Brien

    IMHO (so please don't flip on me), not the best cover on the collection. This song is best sung slower, a little more despondent and sad. Styles that MM is a master of. This whole song is just a little too...perky.

    dean` Brady

    Matt O'Brien Marvins version was hardly slow it was uptempo I’m not following your line of question here mate.

  58. Jorge Rodríguez

    can`t decide which voice i like the most... michael`s or gaye`s

    Matshadi Mogoaladi

    I like Michael more! Hands down!

    MISSINGROGERHOWARTH

    IKR?!?!

  59. Tia Flowers

    powerful voice

  60. Deborah Jibben

    BRAVO!!!!!

  61. Dylan Ford

    My dad told me that if he saw Michael Mcdonald live in concert that he would throw his panties on stage.

    Dario Vilchez

  62. Endre Kállai

    i love this song. it's not about colour. this song is epic!!! and if someone is talented then that's that. music is love, love is music.

  63. Peter Blair

    My favourite song from years ago, sung by my favourite singer. Outdtanding

  64. Ruth Campos

    Uma das minhas preferidas dele.

  65. Laurylie Norman



    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.
    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 yeah.

    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.

    [Chorus]

    People say believe half of what you see,
    son, and none of what you hear.

    Do you plan to let me go

    @pacelect  racism isn't a communist thing, it's a fascist thing. Communist killed fascists.

  71. amysorel12

    Just so you know, I like Marvin Gaye's version as well.

    Britney Perry

    Just so you know both were and are duplicitous.

  72. ♡ℕ

  77. NintendoCapriSun

    How in the world is it humanly possible to have such a TANK of a voice and yet still have such range? This guy's insane.

    Felipe de J. Cervera
