WIIA

Welcome back to WIIA — playing the audit hits of the 60s, 70s, 80s, and whatever we want. By request, the hit that had all our toes tapping in 1968 as we learned about auditors’ unnamed sources.

“I Heard It Through the Grapevine”
 
Oo, I bet you wonder how I knew
’Bout you’re plans of what you’d do
With all of your scams against the company
Of all of the scams you chose a basic scheme
It took you by surprise I could tell
When they hauled you off to jail
Don’t you know…
 
I heard it through the grapevine
All of the details of your big crime
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
And you’re just about to do some time
Buddy, buddy, yeah.
 
I know that an auditor shouldn’t smile
But this grin I can’t hold inside
Catching you has made my life you see
’Cause your fraud meant that much to me
You could have turned in yourself
But I got the word from someone else
You see...
 
I heard it through the grapevine
All of the details of your big crime
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
And you’re just about to do some time
Buddy, buddy, yeah.
 
Standards say you should work from what you see
Nah, nah, not just from what you hear
But I couldn’t help but be concerned
If it was true it fed my darkest fear
You had plans but now you know
There’s no way we’ll ever let you go.
 
I heard it through the grapevine
All of the details of your big crime
Oh, I heard it through the grapevine
And you’re just about to do some time
Buddy, buddy, yeah.
 
There it is — one of the greatest hits of all time. Maybe you’ve got your own favorite. Let us know here at WIIA, and we’ll see if we can play it for you.
