Here’s a lyric from the song “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye that includes the idiom “heard it through the grapevine”:
“I heard it through the grapevine
Not much longer would you be mine.”
In this context, “heard it through the grapevine” means learning about something through informal or unofficial channels, often involving rumors or gossip. The song conveys the idea of someone finding out about a breakup through word-of-mouth rather than directly from their partner.
Here’s a lyric from the song “Hit the Road Jack” by Ray Charles that includes the idiom “hit the road”:
“Hit the road Jack, and don’t you come back
No more, no more, no more, no more.”
In this song, “hit the road” is an idiomatic expression meaning to leave or depart, often used in a dismissive or exasperated way. It’s a classic example of how idioms can be used creatively in song lyrics.
