Sarika Keo is a type of starling bird in Cambodia. It's often kept as a pet and can be trained to speak like a parrot.

The song "Sarika Keo" is sung by adults and children alike. Traditionally, the males sing one part and the females the other. Then they switch parts. We used italics to distinguish this. The part in italics is supposed to be the sound the bird makes.
