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 love what you're doing here. I'm searching for the lyrics of this song for a while, but no luck :(
Could you help me with this?
here you go boss

កន្លង់លាក់ខ្លួនពួនជាប់ទងផ្កា
Konlong Leak Kluan Puan Joab Dtong Phka
The bee hides himself holding onto the stem of the flower

កន្លង់វាចាថ្នមចិត្តម្ចាស់សួន
Konlong Veaja Tnom Jet Mjas Suan
The bee says he loves and cares for the boss of the garden

កន្លង់លាក់ពុតហើររត់គេចពួន
Konlong Leak Put Her Rot Kech Puan
The bee sneakily flies away and hides

កន្លង់លាក់ខ្លួនពួនក្រេបលម្អង
Konlong Leak Kluan Puan Kreb Lomong
The bee hides himself to drink the pollen

កន្លង់ស្លាបពេជ្រឆាប់ភ្លេចបុប្ផា
Konlong Slab Pich Chhab Plech Bopha
The bees diamond wings quickly forgets his flower

ក្រេបហើយកាលណាឆាប់ណាយបង្កង
Kreb Hery Kal Na Chhab Naay Bonkong
Drinks then when he quickly becomes tired of (shrimp? not sure this reference tbh)

កន្លង់អប្រិយឥតអាល័យទង
Konlong Abrey At Alaey Dtong
The unpopular bee without a stem

ភ្លេចពាក្យអូនបងផ្ដោះផ្ដងវាចា
Plech Peak Oun Bong Ptoas Ptong Veaja
Forgetting my words you insinuate words

ផ្ការីករួចហើយរុះរោយលម្អង
Phka Rik Ruach Hery Ros Raoy Lomong
The Flower blossoms then wilts its pollen

ខ្មាសអស់អ្នកផងព្រោះរឿងស្នេហា
Kmas Os Neak Pong Proas Reung Sneha
Embarrassed to all of them because of my love story

ផ្កាខ្ញុំចោលសួនទៅពួនឯណា
Phka Khnyom Jaos Suan Tov Puan Ai Naa
My flower will abandon the garden to go hide somewhere

បើគ្មានវាសនាដូចផ្កាគេឯង
Ber Kmean Veasna Douch Phka Ke Aing
If I'm without the same luck as the other flowers

ទីពឹងសួនគេគេឥតប្រណី
Dti Pung Suan Ke Ke At Broney
Relying on his garden he doesn't care

សង្ឃឹមសួនថ្មីដីបែកក្រហែង
Songkum Suan Tmey Dey Baek Krohaeng
I hope the new garden the land breaks up and cracks

ផ្កាខ្ញុំអភ័ព្វជាប់ចិត្តចំបែង
Phka Khnyom Apoap Joap Jet Jombaeng
My unlucky flower is attached to worry

សោកាឯកឯងកណ្តាលថ្មើរកម្ម
Saoka Aik Aing Kandal Tmer Kam
With regret all alone in the middle of this fateful moment



កន្លង់បងតាមគន្លងប្រពៃណី
Konlong Bong Tam Konlong Bropeyni
My bee follows tradition

ក្រេបលម្អងអូនតាមសំរួល សំរេចចិត្តចូលដណ្តឹងស្រី
Kreb Lomong Oun Tam Somrual, Somrech Jet Joul Dontung Srey
Drinking your pollen following comfort, determined to ask the girls hand in marriage

នឹងមិនអោយអូនស្រែកពេលយប់ បងនឹងនៅក្បែរថ្នាក់ថ្នមថ្លៃ
Nung Min Aoy Oun Sraek Pel Yub, Bong Nung Nov Kbaer Tnak Tnam Thlai
I will not let you call out at night, i will stay close and take very good care of you my dear

មិនរត់ចោលផ្ដាអូនទេ ដូចជាកន្លង់ដែលដទៃ
Min Rot Jaol Phka Oun Te, Douch Jia Konlong Dael Dordai
I wont abandon your flower! like the bees that are different

ពេលបងក្រេបហើយបងនឹងរឹត ហើយបងនឹងហិតថ្ពាល់បុប្ផា
Pel Bong Kreb Hery Bong Nung Rut, Hery Bong Nung Het Tpoal Bopha
When i drink then i will embrace, and i will sniff your cheek darling

ធ្វើអោយអ្នកផ្សេងគេច្រណែន ព្រោះតែមានបងធ្វើសង្សា
Tver Aoy Neak Pseng Ke Jronaen, Proas Tae Mean Bong Tver Songsa
Making all the other people jealous, because you have me as your boyfriend

ទោះយ៉ាងណាបងកន្លង់អូនជាផ្កា
Toas Yang Na Bong Konlong Oun Jia Phka
No matter what, i'm the bee and you are the flower

និស្ស័យយើងបានជាគ្នា បងហើយអូននឹងរៀបការ
Nisaey Yerng Ban Jia Knea, Bong Hery Oun Nung Reub Kar
Determined for us to be together, me and you will marry

Jamie, could you please translate the first song on this video, សារិកាកែវអើយ
This song always gets stuck in my head because my son used to listen to it. I understand maybe 40% of the song. Your translation style always helps me out so much when I learn Khmer.

John Bingham wrote: Sat Apr 28, 2018 11:50 pm Thanks a lot geezer. So basically the whole sense of the song has been changed. The original was about the singer's brother (and JFK) dying, feeling terrible but then looking at the good points about the deceased and the bright side of things. The Sin Sisamouth version is more of a basic love song.
yeah, this is Cambodia pretty much all their songs are about love and heartbreak :plus1:
Apart from my two favourites, "Woman want to drink" and "Whiskey Cambodia".

about a guy who loves giving it big licks and is addicted to going out drinking in the bars and chatting up girls, even though hes just a poor farmer, he likes pretending hes Hi-So, and so sells all his land so can go drinking lol :bow:
