"Sister I'm a Poet" (2:44) is a song by Morrissey. It was featured as a B-side to the single "Everyday Is Like Sunday" as well as the live album Beethoven Was Deaf, compilation albums World of Morrissey, The CD Singles '88–91', The Best of Morrissey, and promotional film release Hulmerist. Though a fan favourite, the song was never released as an A-side.

"Sister I'm a Poet" was used as both the opening and closing song in the DVD recording of Russell Brand's "Doing Life" Tour.
"He has a thing about death. 'Jenny Was a Friend of Mine' and 'Midnight Show', both from Hot Fuss, were about the murder of a girl. He traces this interest back to Morrissey singing about how he loved 'the romance of crime' in the song 'Sister, I'm a Poet'. 'I studied that line a lot. And it's kind of embedded in me."
Later on in the interview, Flowers declares himself as being 'on speaking terms' with Morrissey, a hero of the singer's.
