Song lyrics that are... secondary? alternative? Another term?

What's the correct term for secondary lyrics in songs like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer ("like a light bulb") or Sweet Caroline ("So good! So good! So good!")? Also, can you think of other songs that have these... items?

I don't think you can call them alternate lyrics since they don't replace the main lyrics to the song... but I'm at a loss as to what else they could be called (or if there is a term for them).
