What's with the "sha bop sha bop" that plays a lot in this song?

Sort of like "do-wop a doo-wop" in 50s records.

Nonsense syllables have been a big part of pop music since at least the 19th century.

Exactly. David Seville sent it up with his "ooh-ee ooh-ah-ah ting-tang walla-walla-bing-bang" in Witch Doctor.
