Where is the asterisk supposed to sit?

Horizontal: Just to the right of the last cantor-only word? Just to the left of 
the first choir word? Centred between those words?

Vertical: Centered? On the text baseline?

When I start with this really simple snippet, it seems (as I understand it) 
that we’re already close:

\version "2.19.84"

music = {
  a' g'
  a'( g')
  a' g'
  a'( g')

words = \lyricmode {
  Some \set stanza = "*"
  words \set stanza = "*"
  to go under my notes

\score {
  \new Staff <<
     \new Voice = "mel" { \music }
     \new Lyrics \lyricsto "mel" { \words }
  \layout {
    \context {
      timing = ##f
      \omit BarLine
      \omit Stem

More solution(s) when I understand more about the problem(s).  =)
