Transcribed from the performance of Mr Piet Mabasa by Lwei Netshivhale

Vukati byi Tsandile is a song sung at weddings, mostly when a bride is welcomed in a new family. It has a jovial mood, with beating drums and ululations, and it is also likely to be sung at beer gatherings where the singer is indirectly referring to someone who is failing in her marriage. Lastly, it has also been sung general purposes as someone mentions that it is Christmas in the song.
