When Three Is Company  (1913) 
by Jerome Kern (music) and M. E. Rourke (lyrics)
Song from the musical The Doll Girl.
Sheet music cover

[Verse]

(SHE.) Some wise fellow said that two is company
And one more around will make a crowd of three,
(HE) Don't let that bother you
When you start to bill and coo
(BOTH.) For as you'll see,
There will always be
One more to join your little company!

[Refrain]

(SHE.) While she and you are two it's true,
At times you're not alone there,
You've a Chaper one there,
(HE.) Cupid's the little stranger,
And so it's easy to see,
(BOTH.) That is the only time when three is company!

[Verse]

(HE.) When you're really truly deep in love, why care?
Whether all the cupids in the world are there,
(SHE) Say ev'ry silly thing
Said by all from clown to king,
(BOTH.) No one the worse,
will ever be
You're one of quite a goodly company!

[Refrain]

(SHE.) While she and you are two it's true,
At times you're not alone there,
You've a Chaper one there,
(HE.) Cupid's the little stranger,
And so it's easy to see,
(BOTH.) That is the only time when three is company!
