\"tiekie-draai\" is a dance, \"bangbroek\" a coward, \"kleurlinge\" are Colourds, \"vervloekte\" is damned, \"bakkie\" is a pick-up truck, \"korrels\" are pebbles, \"skoffel\" is to jive to music.

and the songs of angels...

"sang" is songs, i.e. the noun, not "sang" as a past-tense verb. Songs of angels rose over Betlehem.
