Please please help, this question has bugged me for years...

What do the boys sing exactly as a backing vocal in Help on the Way?

There's some arabic sounding words in there, but the one that has always puzzled me sounds like "Althea",yes, the name not the song, and appears a couple of times, eg directly after Without love in the dream it'll never come true..."

I'm referring to 70's versions of course. They must have stopped doing it at some point later on....

Thank you!

After reading this request last night, I (seriously) had this dream that there were all these lyrics that I had previously missed. I was seeing them in published sheet music. I wish I remembered what they were.......

Sheet music is from the live album from Nassau coliseum, spring 1990
I think it is called Without A Net, with Branford.
great shows

Between the lines of the "I will stay/ One more day/" chorus part
