Lyrics – Transliteration

Leak Kanseng!
Chhma khaaim keng!
Oh long oh long

Cambodian / Khmer

លាក់កន្សែង
ឆ្មាខាំកែង
អូសលោង! អូសលោង!

Translation

Hide the towel,
Cats bite,
Drag! Drag! (source)


Game

Formation: Students sit in a circle on the floor.

One person (Person “A”) holds a “Kanseng” (towel) in his hands and walks around the outside of the circle and sings. “A” secretly puts the “Kanseng” behind one of the students on the floor (Person “B”). “B” jumps up, grabbing the towel, along with the person to his/her right (Person “C”). Both “B” and “C” run around the circle, with “B” chasing “C” until “C” returns to his/her spot and sits down again. “B” becomes the new “A” and puts the towel behind another student.
