Alexander O'Neal is een Amerikaanse r&b-zanger/songwriter, geboren op 15 november 1953 in Natchez in de staat Mississippi.

Zijn debuutalbum verschijnt in 1985 en het duurt niet lang voor hij zijn opwachting maakt in de Top 40. Tussen 1987 en 1991 scoort O'Neal vier hits die allemaal ongeveer even hoog komen: Fake (15), Criticize (17), Never Knew Love Like This (16) en All True Man (16). Daarna volgen nog twee Tipparadenoteringen.

In 2010 verscheen O'Neals negende album. Om de 30e verjaardag van zijn tweede soloplaat Hearsay uit 1987 te vieren toerde hij begin 2017 door het Verenigd Koninkrijk.


Songtekst

Your name was patty
But now it's kay
Girl
You seem to change it every day.
Your hair was long
But now it's short
You say: i got it cut
But i don't see no hair upon the floor.
Whenever i go out with you i find out something new.
You're a fake
Baby
You can't conceal it
Know how i know
'cause i can feel it.
You're a fake
Baby
No rhyme or reason
'cause in your mind it's lyin' season.
You had brown eyes
But now they're blue
Those false eyelashes that you're wearin'
Too.
In bed this morning you called me ciyde
Alex is the name that i go by!
If women could be counterfit
Then you'd be it.
You're a fake
Baby
You can't conceal it
. . .
You're a fake
Baby
I've blown your cover
The iig is up
'cause i discovered -
You're a fake
Baby
No need to hide it
Can't change my mind
'cause i've decided -
You're a fake
Baby
And i'm disgusted
The game is through and
Girl
You're busted
Fake!
Whenever i go out with you i find out something new.
You're a fake
You always have a good excuse
But
Girl
That ain't no use.
You're a fake
Baby
You can't conceal it
. . .
You're a fake
Baby
No rhyme or reason
. . .
You're a fake
Baby
Fake
Fake!
