We three, we're all alone
Living in a mem-o-ry
My echo, my shadow, and me

We three, we're not a crowd
We're not even company
My echo, my shadow, and me

What good is the moonlight
The silvery moonlight that shines above?
I walk with my shadow
I talk with my echo
But where is the one I love?

We three, we'll wait for you
Even till eter-ni-ty
My echo, my shadow, and me

Spoken: "We three we're all alone. Seems like we're livin' in a memory. That's my
Echo my shadow and me. We three we ain't no crowd. Fact is we ain't even
Company. That's my echo my shadow and me. You know I been wonderin'-what good is the
Moonlight that silvery moonlight that shines way, way up above? Yeah, I walk with my
Shadow, I talk with my echo, but where is that gal that I love? "

We three, we'll wait for you
Even till eter-ni-ty
My echo, my shadow, and me

Transcriber's note: It is reported that the sheet music starts with:

Here we go A-Gain just rem-I-Nisc-Ing,
Dream-Ing of yes-Ter-Day,
And the joys we're miss-Ing

But The Ink Spots did not sing this intro
