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.

I really love all of these songs, and would be very curious to know what any of them are about (or if you think my best of list is missing something!). Of course only do it at your leisure, if you feel like it:

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
Thank you very much for the effort! I appreciate it since it adds whole other level to the song for me

@stevereeno
here is another from your playlist mate



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
Don't 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.

Can you please shave your beard babe?
Don't keep it, you have to hurry up.
Not young but you want to be old instead.
Aren't you embarrassed? (3x)
LA LA LA LA YAY YAY YAY

What are you keeping that beard for babe?
Or is it for other women to fall in love with it?
As for me, I don't like it.
I will see you later. (3x)

Nice. Thanks again. Another funny one. Seems this one was used in a Gillette commercial (dont know where but I guess its kindof an inside joke cause the commercial text is in English and I can't imagine many people outside of Cambodia knew what it was about:

Heres another i just done from your playlist @stevereeno , one of the greats from Sinn Sisamouth, love this song


Sinn Sisamouth - Min Yol Te

មិនយល់ មិនយល់ទេ មិនយល់ទេ មិនយល់ទេ មិនយល់ទេ
Min Yol, Min Yol Te! Min Yol Te! Min Yol Te!
I don't understand, I don't understand! I don't understand! I don't understand!

ក្តីស្នេហ៍ ប្រែដូចជាយប់ ស្ងាត់សូន្យ អូន អូន អូន បងមិនយល់ទេអូន
Kdey Snei, Brae Doch Jia Yub, Sngat Soun, Oun, Oun, Oun, Bong Min Yol Te Oun!
Love, becomes the same as night, completely silent, darling, darling, darling, I don't understand darling!


មិនយល់ មិនយល់ទេ មិនយល់ទេ មិនយល់ទេ មិនយល់ទេ
Min Yol, Min Yol Te! Min Yol Te! Min Yol Te! Min Yol Te!
I don't understand, I don't understand! I don't understand! I don't understand!

ថង់ស្នេហ៍ ដែលអូនដេររូបបេះដូង ដាក់ដួងចិត្ត តើអូនគិតយ៉ាងណា
Tong Snei, Dael Oun Der Rub Besdong, Dak Duang Jet, Ter Oun Kit Yang Naa?
Loves pocket, that you sewed in the shape of a heart, to put my heart in, What were you thinking?


ព្រលឹង ខឹងរឿងអ្វីឈប់ស្តីរកបង រឿងអ្វី រឿងអ្វី រឿងអ្វីនួនល្អង
Prolung, Kung Reung Avei Chhop Sdey Rok Bong, Reung Avei, Reung Avei, Reung Avei Nuan Laong
Beloved, is angry for what reason to stop thinking about me, what reason, what reason, what reason darling?

អូនស្រាយចំណងស្នេហានៃយើង ទឹកក្លាយជាភ្លើងបងមិនយល់ទេ
Oun Srai Jomnong Sneha Nai Yerng, Dtuk Klai Jia Plerng Bong Min Yol Te!
You untie our love knot, the water turns into a fire i don't understand!


ឆ្ងល់ណាស់ ឆ្ងល់ម្ល៉េះទេ ដាំផ្កាស្នេហ៍ ប្រែជាដុះជ្រោះទឹកភ្នែក
Chhngol Nas, Chhngol Mles Te! Dam Pdam Snei, Brae Jia Dos Jroas Dtuk Pnek
I'm very confused, so confused! I plant a flower of love, it grows out of a valley of tears,

ឆ្ងល់ពេកមេឃឯណាដែលគ្មានថ្ងៃ ឱ!ផែនដី យប់វិលបានឬទេ
Chhngol Pek Mech Ai Naa Dael Kmean Tngai, Oh! Paen Dey, Yub Vil Ban Ruu Te?
I'm confused so much, where is the sky that doesn't have a sun, Oh! Can the night earth spin around?


ខ្យល់អើយ ពពកអើយ នាំចម្លើយហើយឆ្លើយប្រាប់ស្នេហ៍ខ្ញុំផង
Kyol Ery! Popok Ery! Noam Jomlery Hery Chhlery Brap Snei Khnyom Pong
Oh the Wind! Oh the Clouds! Guide my answer and reply tell my love too,

ប្រាប់ផងថាខ្ញុំនេះមិនយល់ទេ តែ តែ តែ តែខ្ញុំនៅតែនឹក
Brap Pong Tha Khnyom Nis Min Yol Te! Tae, Tae, Tae, Tae Khnyom Nov Tae Nuk
Explain also that i don't understand! But, but, but, but i still only miss her
