Cambodian Song Lyrics (requests welcome)

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Of course only do it at your leisure, if you feel like it:

@Joker Poker
here is your lyrics, here is also the original Meng Keo Pichenda version which i prefer as she has a much more traditional beautiful voice :beer3:




ខ្យល់រដូវបក់រំភើយនាពេលសាយ័ណ្ហ
Kyol Rodov Bok Rompery Nea Pel Saiyoan
The seasons breeze blows gently in the evening,

ជាសោភ័ណនៃសុរិយារៀបអស្តង្គត់
Jia Sophoan Nai Soriya Reab Ohsdongkot
Its beauty belonging to the sun that's about to set,

ចិត្តស្រយុតព្រោះដឹងថាប្រុសរៀមរ៉ាជិតឃ្លាតទៅឆ្ងាយ
Jet Sroyut Proas Dung Ta Bros Ream Ra Jit Kleat Tov Chhngay
Feeling weak because I know that my darling is about to leave far away,

ចោលម្ចាស់កាយផ្លាប់នែបនិត្យថ្ងៃណាវិលវិញ
Jaol Mjas Kai Ploab Naeb Nit Tngai Na Vil Vinh
He's abandoning being by my side, which day will he come back?


ខ្យល់រដូវផាត់ហួសទៅស្រែកសួរខ្ញុំថា
Kyol Rodov Pat Huos Tov Sraek Suor Knyom Tha
The seasons breeze blows too much, calling out asking me...

តើថ្ងៃណាម្ចាស់ចិន្ដាត្រឡប់មកវិញ
Ter Tngai Na Mjas Chenda Trolop Mok Vinh
"which day does he think that he will return and come back"

ចិត្តទន្ទេញទន្ទឹងចាំ ចាំយប់ថ្ងៃចាំទាំងស្រមៃ
Jet Tontenh Tontung Jam, Jam Yub Tngai Jam Tang Sromai
My heart must learn how to wait, wait night and day, wait in all my dreams,

តើហេតុអ្វីពុំឃើញថ្លៃវិលតាមសន្យា
Ter Haet Avei Pom Khhernh Tlai Vil Tam Sonya
Why don't i see my dear coming back like he promised?

Oh the Wind, Please have mercy and help guide an answer,

ប្រាប់ត្រាណត្រើយថាខ្ញុំនៅតែរង់ចាំរង់ចាំ
Brap Tran Trery Tha Knyom Nov Tae Rong Jam Rong Jam
Tell my protector that i am still waiting, waiting,

ទោះច្រើនឆ្នាំក៏រង់ចាំសង្ឃឹមថាបងវិលមកវិញ
Toas Chrern Chnam Kor Rong Jam Songkhhum Tha Bong Vil Mok Vinh
Even if its a lot of years, i will wait hoping that my darling will return and come back,

រួមរស់ស្នេហ៍ជាមួយគ្នាជារៀងរហូតទៅ

Many thanks Jamie -

My wife thought that song was an original for Meas Soksophea - thanks for the correction.

Well, they are beautiful words, both versions capture the emotion of the lyrics really well.
I agree with your more traditional voice sentiment.

Tis a lovely song.

i did my best to make it make sense, think its close enough haha @stevereeno

បុប្ផារីកស្រស់ក្នុងសួនមិនស្មើនឹងខ្លួនចរណៃ អូនល្អផុតស្រីក្នុងលោកា
Bopha Rik Sros Knong Suon, Min Smer Nung Kluan Joronai, Oun Laor Put Srey Knong Laoka
The beautiful flowers blossoming in the garden are not the same as you darling, you are the best girl in the world,

ពេលបានឃើញជិតចិត្តរៀមកួចប្រាថ្នា បងចាប់ចិត្តស្នេហាលើអូន
Pel Ban Khern Jit Jet Reum Kuach Pratna, Bong Chab Jet Sneha Ler Oun
When i saw you close to my heart it desired, for me to fall in love over you

ទេសភាពដែលមានទាំងអស់ ចិត្តបងគ្មានក្តីស្រណោះ មិនគិតសោះក៏ព្រោះតែអូន
Tes Piap Dael Mean Tang Os Jet Bong Kmean Kdey Sranoah, Min Kit Saos Kor Proas Tae Oun
The scenery that has everything, my heart is without compassion, doesn't think at all because of you

ខ្ចីល្អប៉ុណ្ណឹងគង់នៅចេញ់រូបស្ងួន ចាញ់ទាំងក្លិនខ្លួនស្រស់ពិសី
Kjey Laor Bonnung Kong Nov Jenh Rub Snguan, Jenh Tang Klen Nung Kluan Sros Pisey
So fresh, good and well kept its still inferior to you my beloved, inferior to all your scents beautiful darling


បងធ្លាប់សើចហើយធ្លាប់យំ ព្រោះតែមុំមិនប្រណី
Bong Tloab Saerch Hery Tloab Yom, Proas Tae Mom Min Broney
I'm used to laughing and crying, because of single girls without compassion

បងចង់រស់ព្រោះតែស្រី ចិត្តបងស្មោះភក្តីតែអូន
Bong Jong Ros Proas Tae Srey, Jet Bong Smoas Peakdey Tae Oun
I want to live because of you, my heart is honest only to you

ធ្វើអ្វីដើម្បីស្នេហា បងស៊ូខំផ្គាប់ចិន្ដា គួរតែមេត្តាណាមាសស្ងួន
Tver Avey Dermbey Sneha, Bong Su Kom Pkoab Chenda, Kuar Tae Metta Na Meas Snguan
What i do for love, i dare to try hard to satisfy thoughts, should have compassion my beloved

អ្វីដែលមានទាំងអស់ ទុកសំរាប់តែអូន បើបងសូន្យក៏ព្រោះតែអូន
Avey Dael Mean Tang Os Tuk Somrap Tae Oun, Ber Bong Soun Kor Proas Tae Oun
Anything that has it all keep for only you, if i'm empty then its because of you
