Yesterday I was a little bit unwell so I had an idea of making this lesson. I also found a song that has the same expression in the lyrics, so I put a few sentences from the song here as I thought it might help you remember the expression better 🙂
Please listen to the song and see below the lyrics I picked up from 00:07 to 00:19.
The song is called “Bpen a-rai” by “Royal Sprites”, an old Thai band from 1979.
Bpen à-rai jueng sài wân-dtaa dam
What’s wrong so you are wearing sun glasses?
VOCABULARY : ใส่ [sài] = to wear
แว่นตาดำ [wân-dtaa dam] = sun glasses
Bpen à-rai krai tam nóng dâi
What’s wrong? Who could do this to you, my baby?
VOCABULARY : ใคร [krai] = who?
ทำ [tam] = to do
น้อง [nóng] = a pronoun used to call someone who is younger than you. In this song the singer refers to his girlfriend.
Bòrk maa ná. Gáew-dtaa yàa róng-hâai
Please tell me, darling do not cry.
VOCABULARY : บอก [bòrk] = to tell
แก้วตา [Gáew-dtaa] = an old term used to call your loved one.
อย่า [yàa] = Do not

I hope you like the song and found this lesson useful and helpful 🙂
