One wire is the hot off the plug, one is the hot to one socket, and the third wire is the hot for the second socket. You'll have to check the switch for the exact color code / which wire is which (I don't know if there is a standard). You can test it easily with a multimeter as well.

How do you rewire the rotary switch to the single socket 3-way bulb lamp correctly?

There should be only (2) screws in a 3-way lamp socket. The (hot) black wire goes on the dark screw (brass), and the (neutral) white wire on the light colored screw (silver). Sometimes one wire has printing on it, that one is the (hot) black, and the other one with ridges along it's sides is the (neutral) white. Make sure you re-install the cardboard sleeve in the lamp switch. Another thing you may notice is the prongs on the plug at the end of the cord has one prong that is wider than the other, the wider one is the (neutral) white. You can use a regular (non 3-way) bulb in the lamp. It will then take 2 clicks to turn it on, and 2 clicks to turn it off.
