A New Car In The Garage

Forgive me if my handshake for my new sister-in-law is cold
For I have but one sister-in-law,
And this is not her.

Was my sister-in law traded in like an old car you no longer had any use for
For this new wife of yours I'm supposed to accept as my new sister-in-law?
Forgive me if my eyes find it difficult to meet hers
For I have but one sister-in-law
And this is not her.

Was my sister-in-law traded in like an old fridge whose usefulness had been outlived
For this new spouse of yours I'm obliged to accept as my new sister-in-law?
Forgive me if my mouth finds it difficult to speak to her
For I have but one sister-in-law
And this is not her.
