Biography

"Hey, Hey Oh" is what crowds frequently chant as they clap their hands to this Gypsy band. Made up of Koal, Davy, Skitch and Tucker, The Getbye is quickly becoming one of the most talked about groups in their native Orlando, Florida.  From one man simultaneously playing accordions, drums and trumpets at the same time, to the others filling on bongos, bass and guitar, The Getbye is certainly a spectacle to be seen, and one that's hard to miss.  Their whirlwind of sound, and love, has carried them from The Florida Music Festival, Westward to Backwoods Music Fest, and North to Indiana's Good People Good Times Festival along with a host of other gypsy forest fests.  Our gypsy sound has played along side artist such as Porter Robinson, Lettuce, The Floozies, Papadosio, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Odeza, Erykah Badu, Ms MR, Supervillians, Keller Williams, HoundMouth, Dr. Dog, Infected Mushroom and Less than Jake.  The Getbye makes their audience the fifth member of the band through clapping, chanting and by even passing around their own percussive instruments, the shows are just as much a party as they are a performance.  It's music, it's peace and a little something they like to call "Gypsy Love".

Lyrics

Funeral Song

Written By: Kyle Smith,Davy Pendry

I went back down to dust, my soul rose to its home
I’ve never seen such beauty before when you opened up eternal doors
Well I feel dead! But not for long
Death is life and life is death I gained it all when I lost myself aha

So it kind of came to me
I saw a light and it called my name
I couldn’t explain

Then an angel grabbed my hand
We danced all night without a plan
I aint coming back

Father son and holy ghost
Do you do you know it most
I’m feeling wrong, man this is a Funeral Song

Burry me next to Ma and Pa in my sundays best,
Yea its time to rest

Raises your glasses, and wipe your tears aint got no time
Im drinking with the king tonight

Do what you wanna do everybody's living like hey its just the end of the world my friend
Man this is a funeral song

Well I aint afraid to die, there will be no tears where I fly so please don’t cry
No not for long, ‘Cause i’ll be dancing singin my song finally somewhere I belong
Oh me oh my oh me oh my you broke those chains of mine
Oooh you you hear the heavenly choir as you left those bones and your spirit rose
So sound the horn

Let everybody say goodbye
Everybody stood at his side
Then the divine said to me
Would you stand son and let this party begin

Well I aint afraid to die, there will be no tears where I fly so please don’t cry
No not for long, ‘Cause i’ll be dancing singing my song finally somewhere I belong
Oh me oh my oh me oh my you broke those chains of mine
Oooh you you hear the heavenly choir as you left those bones and your spirit rose
So sound the horn

Medicine Man

Written By: Kyle Smith,Davy Pendry

I sold my soul to a medicine man wearing black
He said take this pill and drink from that water you call Life (Hey)

My body feels like I am going alone on my own
My spirit take it to the sky I don’t know where to go (Hey)

Come on come all, all who thirst will find theres more than anyones easy bid to win, steal the wind, naha ‘cause the waters blowing in

Hey you turned my two to one, the waters deep down there
Oh to give all you have for an unseen life, down there, step on in step on in

I sold my soul to a medicine man wearing black
He said take this pill and drink from that water you call Life......

You was on your way with that tired look of love
And the drum beat carried on and it sounded some like that
la da dada da da da la da dada da da da la da dada da da da Yea la di dada daaaaaaa

Hey you turned my two to one, the waters deep down there
Oh to give all you have for an unseen life, oh step on in step on in

Carpenter Song

Written By: Kyle Smith,Davy Pendry

There’s a girl, she sleeps in the streets
Every night, her heart beats to a lonely drum of pain As the fat mans cash, he buys her soul (No)

We live in an imperfect world
Every time I hear the people the guns go bang and the feelings too
I coulda swore I heard it too

Jesus was a carpenter too
He built the world and we sang the blues
Upside down run around again I though I saw his eyes that night.

Look into his hearts of fire
broken hearts is his desire

Don’t ya know, the word is alive
behind a veil we hide outside
But love has burned through

Jesus was a carpenter too
He built the world and we sang the blues
Upside down run around again I though I saw his eyes that night.

Your starving inside and you don’t ever know it
The pain in your heart you wont ever show it
All of you brokenness he will see through it, gunna heal ya

Well I just kinda saw you there, you was laying on the ground
Maybe you was drunk or stoned or just feeling all this sound
But everything got kinda twisted and kinda fucked up in your head
You do what do you do it again We’ll burn this house down

Burn the waste away so he can build you up
Tear it down today so your grounds clear for a strong foundation I said

Home

Written By: Kyle Smith,Davy Pendry

Falling down again
going strong against the wind

well listen here yea i did it, I took it all
would you do what you do were you really that bad or were you just standing tall?
cuz i wanted you not to sleep but you packed your bags and hid the shit
cuz you was going home

the poet speaks to those who pray
i been living i been trying to find my way
the sea is red with all you know
i've been feeling i been fighting to find my way home

well listen kid yea i did it, I took it all
would you do what you do were you really that bad or were you just standing tall?
cuz i wanted you not to sleep but you packed your bags and you hid the shit
cuz you was going home

cause if you do what i say i wanna feel just like i'm on the stage
cuz if you feel like hey i may i might ill be all alone again
cuz if you have a soul hey yeah thats rock and roll man you all messed up
well i think i may i might say fuck it i'm going home

Ditty

Written By: Kyle Smith,Davy pendry

I guess I'll sing a little bit louder than the next guy
Even tho my voice is sounding fine
You and I we aren't the same
So you will have to go

And if I go than who would you be
cause you could be the only one
I ever wanted..
The only one I ever wanted yeaeaa

Cuz I wont write you a letter
so don't wait for your words to save you
What would your mother say to you
sleeping at the tops of buildings you'd fall
yea you'd fall

Tomorrow came and your too late
Ask yourself now whose to blame
Its never you but someone else
girl your not what i thought you were

And if I go than who would you be
cuz you could be the only
I ever wanted..
The only one I ever wanted yea yea..

Cuz i wont write you a letter
so don't wait for your words to save you
what would your mother say to you
sleeping at the tops of buildings you'd fall
yea yea youuuu fall
