The Mexican is a piece of music on the album ''First Base'' (1972) by the 1970s British band Babe Ruth.

The song is based on the whistling from the music soundtrack by Ennio Morricone film For a Few Dollars More, It has been compiled, covered and mixed many times and is considered one of the most influential songs in Hip - Hop music .

Alan Shacklock wrote the lyrics of the song as a retort to the 1960 John Wayne film The Alamo which was full of historical inaccuracies and did not show the human side of the Mexican troops who defeated the Texan forces at the Battle of the Alamo, It was Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in the summer of 1972.

Absolutely timeless, classic house track from Todd Terry based around a sample taken from one of Sergio Leone's spaghetti western soundtracks. Brilliant, must have track.
