I Heard It Through The Grapevine


Please start playing the embedded video below before reading the following lyrics:

Ooh, I bet you’re wondering 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
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Don’t you know that...

I heard it through the facebook
You were ‘tagged’ so I had to look
At a photo that somebody took
At a party and it left me shook
Honey, honey, yeah

I know a man ain’t supposed to cry
But your status ain’t something I ‘Like’
I scored full marks on your ‘How well do you know?’
And that was just ‘about an hour ago’.
It don’t know why you couldn’t have waited
To change your ‘relationship’ to ‘it’s complicated’
Instead...

I heard it through the facebook
You were ‘tagged’ so I had to look
At a photo that somebody took
At a party of you in a nook
Honey, honey, yeah

People say believe half of what you see
But I can’t see you ‘cause you’ve ‘blocked’ me
Now I don’t know what you’re up to
Or ‘Which Friends character are you?’
I can’t even try to beat your score
Cos we don’t play Scrabble any more
Don’t you know...

I heard it through the facebook
You were ‘tagged’ so I had to look
At a photo that somebody took
Of you laughing as you cocked a snook
Honey, honey, yeah

Honey honey, I know,
Your top five children’s TV shows...

Oh, I heard it through the facebook...
