Did your friends expect you to lie? Did they know the true fact?
Did you think you would benefit in any way from lying? did you expect your friends to find out the truth at some later moment?
Were you playing a game?

Is the hobby cycling?
Does the original song concerns the hobby? Was the untrue part of your lyrics along the lines of the original song?
Did you describe something untrue because it better fitted the rhytm and melody of the song? Because it corresponded with what was the song originally associated with?

yes...may I have a recap? and was your plane particularly relevant? the pig, I think you said? might be dangerous to name one the fish, even if crazy fish make good puzzlers =) planes should not be fish unless they are seaplanes.

RECAP:
I wrote a song to an existing tune, and sang it for my skydiving friends. The song was about something we had experienced, but parts of it was embellished or untrue. The embellishments and untruths were for humorous effect.

To find out: what was the song about (in general terms), and why did I write it?

Was the song about your skydiving in general? One particular expedition? Something very specific that happened during expedition?
Would you like the event to be as you described it in the song? If not, would it be bad? dangerous?

Was the song about your skydiving in general? Partially. One particular expedition? Several particular jumps were described. Something very specific that happened during expedition? The lie is about what happened on a jump.
Would you like the event to be as you described it in the song? No. If not, would it be bad? dangerous? Yes to both.

Did someone get injured? die? loose equipment? in your song? Yes to all - in reality, everything went fine.
I guess it's time for the
***SPOILER***
It seems to me like people who do dangerous things, always will develop a sense for black humor. My song is about things that happened during my first year of skydiving, with embellishments here and there for comedic effect.

I've mentioned before the tradition of the Case - if you've done something great or very stupid in skydiving, you need to set out a case of beer for your buddies and yell "CASE!", and they have to run as fast as they can to get to it.

The last verse is where everything goes south -

Vi fäller elever i sandtag och träd We drop studens in sand pits and trees
Vi landar i kors och i tvärsWe land in any direction(stupid and dangerous in reality, sets the tone for this verse)
Jag drog i mitt handtag, men ut kom ett städI pulled on my handle, but out came an anvil
Nu sjunger jag min sista versI'm singing on my last verse (also a metaphor for objects worn out and ready to be discarded)
Cypressen är borta, mitt nödhandtag avThe Cypres (safety device which would deploy my reserve) is missing, my reserve handle broken
I furan där nedanför ligger min gravIn that fir tree below lies my grave
Jag kuttar bort städet, far tvärs genom trädetI cut away the anvil and go straight through the tree
Och är indränkt i kåda och savAnd I'm covered in resin and sap
Nu ska jag få vila i fredNow I will rest in peace (here begins the song's "bridge", sung slowly in a mellow voice)
det var kul att jag fick vara medIt was fun to be with you all
Men nu är det över, och det sista jag hör är---But now it is over, and the last thing I hear is--- (pause for dramatic effect)
Det är case på att landa i träd!(loudly, happily)You owe us a Case for landing in trees!


It was a great success, and is still the most popular of my skydiving songs (now a tradition every year).
