DOA is a song from The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical.

Lyrics

Charon: Seen plenty of people all over the years.
From heroes to half-bloods with there pitiful tears.
Thinking they could save a loved one, from below.

Ensemble: Oh no, oh no! Oh no!

Charon: They think they’ll pop down for a quick trip.

James Brown: It don’t work like that!

Charon: So kids, here’s a tip.
You ain’t getting out,
We gotcha and we ain’t letting go.

Ensemble: Oh no! Oh no!

Charon: Down here you’re DOA.
And you’re here to stay.
Yeah, your stuck forever.
Never get away.

No hope of survival,
Your dead on arrival.

[spoken]
What do you think of my song?

Annabeth: It’s... great.

Percy: Is that James Brown?

Charon: We have all the greats down here! Mozart, Janice Joplin, Kirt Cobain, who do you want to listen to?

Grover: Ooh! Do you have any, Josh Groban?

Charon: Mm. We will, eventually.

[sung]
I ferry the souls of the newly deceased.
I got a sweet ride, and it’s newly leased!
And if the dead complain, I just turn up the stereo.

Ensemble: Come sail away, come sail away.

Janice Joplin: We get our kicks, cross the River Styx.

Kirt Cobain: It’s a permanent trip, so don’t try no tricks!

Mozart: Gentlemen and ladies, it’s Hades who runs the show.

[spoken]

Charon: (chuckles) Oh look, the Vienna boys Choir. They crashed their bus on their way to sing for the Pope.

Percy: They’re kids.

Charon: They’re lucky. Their voices will never change now.

[sung]
Vienna Boys Choir: Eins, zwei, drei!
Down here you’re DOA,
And your here to stay.
Yeah, you’re stuck forever,
Never getting away.
No hope of survival...

[spoken]
Charon: Your dead! Who has three heads and two sick turntables. Please give it up for DJ Cerberus!

[sung]
Ensemble: D.O.A.
D.O.A.

Charon: Down here you’re DOA,
And you’re here to stay.
Yeah your stuck forever.
Never getting away.
No hope of survival,
Your dead on arrival.

Ensemble: Can’t get away, can’t get away.
Can’t get away cause you’re DOA now.
Can’t get away, can’t get away,
Can’t get away cause you’re DOA now.

(Charon: Oh yeah!)

Can’t get away, can’t get away.
Can’t get away cause you’re DOA now.
Can’t get away, can’t get away.
Can’t get away cause you’re DOA now.

Can’t get away, can’t get away.
Can’t get away cause you’re DOA now.
Can’t get away, can’t get away.
Can’t get away cause you’re DOA now.

Charon: You ain’t never gonna save what matters.
You ain’t never gonna protect your friends.
You ain’t never gonna be remembered.

This is where you’re story ends today.

All: DOA!
