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.

Did a search to see if this was translated yet. As you can imagine "sneaha" shows up a lot in a search. It is one of my top 5 favorite songs from that golden era.

Mind translating it?

yeah on the case now bro :thumb:

Twas a pain in the arse this one lol @CBEQ, not completely satisfied but its close enough for you to understand the gist of the song

គ្រាន់តែគេញញឹមរកម្ដង ទ្រូងសៅហ្មងញាប់ញ័រពេកក្រៃ
Kroan Tae Ke Nhor Nhum Rok Mdong, Trong Sav Hmong Nhoab Nhaer Pek Krai
Only he smiles once and for all, my heart is very anxious and trembles too much

ចង់ដឹងណាស់តើមកពីអ្វី បានជាស្រីរំភើបម្លឹងៗ
Jong Dung Nas Ter Mok Pi Avey, Ban Jia Srey Romperb Mlung Mlung
I really want to know, what caused it?, the reason why i tremble so much...

Kuar Klach Sechkdey Sneha

ខូចចិត្តក៏ព្រោះស្នេហា
Koch Jet Kor Proas Sneha
Devastated because of love...

យ៉ាងណាទើបដោះស្រាយបាន
Yang Na Terb Daos Sray Ban?
How then can i solve this problem?


ស្នេហានាំអំពល់គ្រប់មុខ បង្កទុក្ខរុករានពេញប្រាណ
Sneha Noam Ompol Krub Muk, Bongkor Tukk Ruk Rean Penh Bran
Love brings all kinds of worry, causes suffering which takes over my whole life

ក្ដីសប្បាយដែលធ្លាប់តែមាន អន្ដរធានវិនាសគ្មានសល់

Thank you so much. This matches my wife's description of the song "To love dangerously."

yeah i think shes basically singing about love is dangerous, and you should fear it, as love is not always a fairy tale and can bring a lot of hurt

A bit like this one. Can you translate it into Khmer, Jamie. Preap Sovath could probably do it quite well.




Love hurts
Love scars
Love wounds and marks
Any heart not tough or strong enough
To take a lot of pain, take a lot of pain
Love is like a cloud, it holds a lot of rain
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts

I'm young
I know
But even so
I know a thing or two, I learned from you
I really learned a lot, really learned a lot
Love is like a flame, it burns you when it's hot
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts

Some fools think
Of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves, I guess
They're not foolin' me
I know it isn't true I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts
Ooh love hurts

I know it isn't true
I know it isn't true
Love is just a lie made to make you blue
Love hurts
Ooh love hurts
Ooh, love hurts, ooh
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Classic song, but here's a trivial thing thing that Jamie might bear in mind if he translates it.
It was originally written by the great Roy Orbison. The line in the Nazareth version...'Love is like a flame, it burns you when it's hot.'... differs to Roy's original lyric which was ...'Love is like a stove, it burns you when it's hot.'...
Just sayin'....

@Jamie_Lambo

Give this one a crack if you can. I tried, but my hands always end up down my pants.
