In your lyrics definition, you're missing curly brackets around the
alternatives:

\alternative
{ so }
{ do }

The { do } block isn't part of the \alternative block, so lilypond interprets the volta as having a repeat count of two, with only one
alternative.

Ok, thanks. That doesn't get me much closer to a solution that
engraves and plays correctly, then.

It's not possible to do this within a single \score
block.  Have a look at Notation Reference 3.5.4 "Repeats
in MIDI".
