SAY WHAT?!: 'Cisco Kid', WAR
Answering the lyrical question, 'wait, what did they say?'.
"Cisco Kid" by WAR is one of the funkiest songs of all time. In more ways than one. At the end, the chanted refrain 'Cisco Kid was a friend of mine' changes on the last fade-out to 'Cisco Kid breaks wind all the time.'
WAR -"Cisco Kid" (1972)
The song was inspired by the classic 50's TV adventure western, "The Cisco Kid". When it was remade in the 90's with Jimmy Smits and Cheech Marin, the WAR song was used in the credits.
Because of a legal name rip-off, the currently-touring version of "War" has only one original member. Throw all your support instead to the real surviving members in the actual group, The LowRider Band!
