The Elements Song

Tom Lehrer wrote satirical songs in the mid-20th century, great stuff like Poisoning Pigeons in the Park, The Masochism Tango, The Vatican Rag and The Old Dope Peddler.

The Elements Song is a listing of the elements set to the tune of the Major General song from Pirates of Penzanze. It's slightly amusing compared to his more scathing work.
