Stanzas can have different numbers of lines. According to the Web site http://www.aasd.k12.wi.us/staff/wiesebrad/Poetry/s...
The most common stanza types, according to Write Source 2000, are these:
Couplet - two-line stanza
Triplet - three-line stanza
Quatrain - four-line stanza
Sestet - six-line stanza
Septet - seven-line stanza
Octave - eight-line stanza

In traditional English-language poems, stanzas can be identified and grouped together because they share a rhyme scheme, or a fixed number of lines. THE NUMBER OF LINES CAN VARY, although 4 is the most commonly used. At the link below, at the bottom of the page is a poem showing 3 groups of 4-line stanzas, and ending with a 2-line couplet.
The short answer is 2 for a couplet. After that 3 lines is a tercet; 4 lines is a quatrain; 5 is a cinquain or quintain; and so on.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanza

well i hope this help ..
but i think most are made out of 4
generally most songs, and quite a few poems follow the ABCB rule of ryhme.
but in poetry ..the authoer could have any number of lines.
a limerick for example has 5 lines
and a hieku ( spelled wrong i'm sorry ) would have 3 lines
