Been eating too much pizza whilst watching opera Freedom07 ??
"What am I without you?
What am I if thou art dead.?
Often wondered that myself.
I was taught a simple version of the tune by a piano teacher as a child but did not discovered the origins or the words until I was an adult.
THEN nobody would believe me that those were the words. To dismal for such a nice piece of music.
P.S. I am still learning the tune sixty odd years later!
