Cambodian Songs/Lyrics

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.

Ros Sereysothea - Kom Nuk Oun Ey

គន់មើលមេឃ មេឃអើយខ្ពស់ឆ្ងាយ
Kon Merl Mech, Mech Ery Khpoas Chhngay
I look up at the sky, Ohh the sky so high and distant,

គន់មើលទៅផ្កាយ ផ្កាយអើយនៅឆ្ងាយអនេក
Kon Merl Tov Phkay, Phkay Ery Nov Chhngay Onaek
I look up at the stars, Ohh the stars still distant and so many.


ទឹករលកបក់បោកផ្លេកៗ
Dtuk Rolok Bok Boak Phlek Phlek
The wind blows hard making the water ripple and shimmer,

នឹកឡើងសង្វេគៗស្ទើរបែកឱរ៉ា
Nuk Lerng Songvaek Songvaek, Ster Baek Aora
I increasingly miss and worry, to the point my chest almost bursts,

ស្រណោះដៃថ្លៃធ្លប់ស្រវា
Sronaoh Dai Thlai Tloap Srova
I miss the hand my dearest used to grab,

តែអនិច្ចាស្នេហាយើងរលាយហើយ
Tae Onicha Sneha Yerng Roleay Hery
But its a pity our love has already faded away.


អូនឃ្លាតឆ្ងាយនៅស្ដាយរូបថ្លៃ
Oun Khleat Chhngay Nov Sday Rub Thlai
I leave far away and still regret it dearly,

កុំនឹកអូនអី ណាថ្លៃៗមាសអូនអើយ
Kom Nuk Oun Ey, Na Thlai Thlai Meas Oun Ery
Dont miss me, Ohh where is my dearest beloved?


កម្មពង្រាត់ឲ្យព្រាត់គ្នាហើយ
Kam Pongroat Aoy Proat Knea Hery
Our fate forces us to separate so we've separated already,

ជាតិនេះជាតិក្រោយ មាសអូនអើយ អូនសុំផ្សង
Jiat Nis Jiat Kraoy Meas Oun Ery Oun Som Psong
This life and the next life Ohh my beloved I pray,

សុំឲ្យបានជួបដូចបំណង
Som Aoy Ban Juab Doch Bomnong
Please allow me to meet the same as i desire,

បានជួបបងលង់លុះរៀងរាបអើយ
Ban Juab Bong Long Luh Reung Reab Ery
Ohh to meet you always.

I always want to sing this at karaoke with my wife, but I'm unsure of its meaning and unsure of the Khmer words. It is one of my favorite songs though, just the music and the voices of Ros Serey Sothea and Sinn Sisamouth.

I didn't find anything in the search results if this has been translated already.

Are there places in Phnom Penh where you can enjoy the older Cambodian music like stuff by Sinn Sissamouth or Pan Ron, Ros Sereysothea etc? Like cover bands or just places that play the music?
