"Buscando Guayaba" is a song from Oliver & Company, performed by Rubén Blades. It is heard playing on Fagin's radio while Tito is dancing, and again on the boom box towards the end of the film. The song title means "In Search of Fruit" in Spanish. The actual lyrics to this song are not heard in the movie, but they can be heard on the Oliver & Company soundtrack.

Lyrics

Me fui pal' monte buscando guayaba
Por la vereda del ocho y el dos
Y aunque encontré una casa dorada
Esa guayaba no la hallaba yo
Mucho he viajado por todo el mundo
Y nunca nunca pude encontrar
Una guayaba que me gustara
Y detuviera mi caminar
Y aunque encontre una casa dorada
Esa guayaba no pude hallar

Buscando guayaba ando yo
Que tenga sabor que tenga mendo

Una guayaba salve y morena
Una guayaba que este bien buena
Bururú barará donde va Miguel
Bururú barará fue a buscar también guayaba
Que pero que tenga mucho mendo pero
Que tenga que tenga muchisimo sabor
Busco una guayaba busco una guayaba busco una guayaba
Por la vereda del ocho y el dos

Rinquin oye el guitarrista no vino asi que van a tener que soportar
Un solo de boca
Afinacion quin quin con con

Que tenga sabor que tenga mendo
Buscando guayaba ando yo
Guayabita sabanera
Buscando guayaba ando yo
Que tenga sabor y que tenga mendo
Buscando guayaba ando yo

I went to the mountain in search for a fruit
I took the trail of the eight and the two
And though I found a golden house, the fruit was not to be had
I have traveled all over the world, and have never being able to find
A fruit that I like enough to make me stop my wanderings
Although I didn't find a golden hours, I never found that fruit

In search of a fruit am I
A fruit with flavor, with zest

A fruit with dark skin
A really good fruit
Bururú Barará, where is Miguel going
Bururú Barará, he went in search of fruit too
A fruit with a lot of zest
A fruit with a lot of flavor

I’m in search of a fruit
I’m in search of a fruit
I’m in search of a fruit
On the eight and two road
