Quick question about reading sheet music

Movies, TV and Entertainment
Howdy,
Not sure if this is the best place to ask but I am currently learning to read sheet music and plan on learning the piano and I am wondering what the numbers above the treble clef mean/stand for. Linked and circled what I meant.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.!
It just tells you which measure you're on. Most music, including the one you linked, has four beats or quarter notes to a measure. It's just a quick way to find your place, much like page numbers in a book.
Basically just saying what Measure you are on.
Oh, I get it now.

Thanks so much!
