Do The Loony Dook

There's an old tradition in South Queensferry dating back to the 1980s called the Loony Dook, in which hundreds of people jump into the Firth Of Forth on New Year's Day. This year, I took part in this clearly ridiculous pastime and after drying off, decided it needed a song named after it. It's a Cheap Trick, but someone has to do it. 'Do The Necessary' also mentions South Queensferry, which is why it's tacked on.
