Stand and deliver, for I am the bold deceiver!

1. In music, what's the word for lyrics that don't mean anything, like "na na na na"?

2. Is the chorus of the traditional Irish song Whiskey in the Jar an example of #1, or does it actually mean something? I've seen several different versions, so if they do mean something, I'm guessing it's a corruption of something else.
