    I was wondering if the word 닐리리야 means anything or if it's just nonsense to fill syllables when singing.

    저는 송소희 비디오를 보면서 이 단어를 찾았어요.
    (그런데, 송소희 목소리가 경이롭게 아름다워요. 저는 여자친구가 있지만 송소희하고 결혼하고 싶어요.)

    늴리리야 is actually one of well-known traditional folk songs. I remember I was taught in school. It is pronounced 닐리리야. In the song, 늴리리야 is used as a refrain. So I guess the word doesn’t have any particular meaning but fill syllables as you said. The one thing I'd like to add is the part made our ancestors feel delightful and energized.
