Identify This Opera Song From A Vague Description

I've got a snippet of opera currently digging through my ears as an earworm. Don't know how it got there, but I need to get rid of it.

It's a mournful dirge, sung by a tenor. If he performs it correctly, the audience can hear the performer's heart being ripped out as he sings.

I only know two bars of it.

First bar, two long syllables. Second bar, short syllable, second long syllable heavily emphasized, third long syllable.

Laaaaa, laaaaaa,
la LAAAAAAA laaaa....

It was in a commercial from a decade or so ago. A man was listening to it on his record player and was wailing mournfully at the song.

Does this ring a bell for anyone?
If you see "Sent from my phone blah blah blah" in my post, please understand that this is automatic when I post from my phone, and I don't know how to disable it. Sorry.
