In (I think) both Irish and Scottish singing there's something called "mouth music" which is basically singing to rhythmic syllables -- I think sometimes it's real lyrics and sometimes nonsense. I've also heard of some songs where it turned out the song was once translated from Gaelic into English, and nonsense syllables in the English version were real words in Gaelic. It probably depends on the song.
