You interested in my sister, huh?
Well I promise you
Whatever you do to her
I’ll do right back to you

You interested in my sister, huh?
Well make sure you stay in line
You treat her with respect
And we’ll get along just fine

You interested in my sister, huh?
You say you’ll treat her well
I hope for your safety that
That’s not just a line you bought to sell

You interested in my sister, huh?
You asked her out to a dance
Better keep your hands where I can see them
While you two romance

You interested in my sister, huh?
Well then, don’t break her heart
If you do, you’ll soon realize
You’re really not all that smart

You interested in my sister, huh?
Well then you’ll have to put up with me
It’s a little test I do
To see if you’re really what you claim to be

You interested in my sister, huh?
I know I’m being really tough
Sorry, it’s just a thing I do
To see if you really know your stuff

Like my sister?
Hey that’s fine I’m all done!
Just keep in mind there’s a reason why
All the ‘good’ die young

I wrote this poem to express myself when my sister got a boyfriend. So fair, he's very much alive.
