Literally "The Peanut Vendor", this is a son/pregón, imitating the cry of a street vendor. It was written for a show in Spain presenting Cuban dance and music.

Lyrics credits are contested with at least one source each crediting either singer Rita Montaner, Gonzalo de Mello or an unknown street vendor.
