T’was the night before Christmas
And all through the land
All the fangirls were tweeting
About their favorite man-band
Notifications were on, so they’d ring loud and clear
If hopes that the Backstreet Boys soon would appear.
Some of us were nestled all snug in our beds
While visits of our Boys danced in their heads
Some in our tour merch, some in a sweater
Arguing over which BSB is better.
When there from the internet, alarms started beeping
We spring from our slumber, was that a Backstreet Boy tweeting?
Straight to our screens, we fly super quick
Is it Brian? Kevin? Howie, AJ or Nick?!
Quickly we respond to the words that they tweet
How fast we can reply is surely a feat
When, what to our wondering eyes should appear,
All of the Backstreet Boys –they’re finally here!
With Howie and Brian, so lively and quick,
Four tweets in 10 seconds? It must be that Nick!
More rapid than eagles, Kevin and AJ they came
They emoji-ed and tweeted and called us by name:
“Hey Jen! Hello Kim!
Hi, Amber and Stephanie!
Yo, Rose! Yo, Sasa!
Hey Monica and Katie!
To all of the fans,
We see all y’all!
Tweet, tweet, tweet, tweet,
Replying to all!”
And then, in a minute, alerts we all heard
Tweeting and chirping from each Backstreet bird.
As we scrolled through replies and refreshed our page
Our hearts filled with excitement, no matter the age.
Our blood was flowing fast, from our heads to our feet,
The Backstreet Boys were making our night with each little tweet.
Lots to say about when Backstreet would be back
Say no more, Boys, we’re already packed.
Kevin’s eyes – how they twinkle! Nick’s dimple, how merry!
Brian’s cheeks were like roses, Howie’s nose like a cherry!
AJ’s bearded mouth, draws up in a smirk.
The charm of a Backstreet Boy, man, it seems to work.
A few hours later, things seemed to wind down
And away the Boys went, but still lurked around
We saw them all tweet, before they went out of sight,
“We’ll see you next year! Backstreet will be back, alright?”
