Pretty Fly (For a White Guy) is on the America album which was released in 1998. According to songfacts.com The “Uno dos tres cuatro cinqo cinqo seis” line was sung by Higgins XX-13, the cousin of a member of the band’s internet mailing list. The site also mentions that Weird Al Yankovic did a parody of this entitled “Pretty Fly (For A Rabbi)” for his album Running with Scissors.
