I Heard It Through the Grapevine

 

Ooo I bet you’re wonderin’ how I knew
‘Bout your plans to make me blue
With some other guy that you knew before
Between the two of us guys
You know I loved you more
It took me by surprise I must say
When I found out yesterday
Ooo I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Ooo I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah
You 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 found someone else
Instead I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine
Ooo I heard it through the grapevine
And I’m just about to lose my mind
Honey, honey yeah

Analysis

This song is about a guy who knows he is going to be jilted by his girlfriend. He rues the fact that his girlfriend did not tell him straight-out that she was going to go with some other guy, instead he has discovered about his girlfriend’s plan to leave him through gossip. I have never gone through this painful experience myself, but can you imagine what it would feel like, if your girlfriend were to go with some other guy and you were the last person to know it? you would surely lose your sanity. That is why he says that even
though a man is not supposed to cry but he is so broken-hearted that he can not hold his tears

Grammar

You could have told me yourself. But you did not

You should have told yourself.But you did not

The broken-hearted guy expected his girlfriend to tell him he was going with some other guy but his girlfriend did not
