look up any word, like swag:
In a song where there is more than one set of lyrics being sung at a time, the less prominent words can be referred to as background lyrics.

You do not necessarily have to be able to make out what the background lyrics actually say for them to qualify for this term.

Guy #1: Damn, that's gonna bug me all day...
