The Elements, Expanded -- even more elements, written by Mike Selinker. Inspired by the original Tom Lehrer classic (www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcS3NOQnsQM).

lyrics

There’s isogen and necrogen and mithril and vibranium
And arcanite and kryptonite and also unobtanium
There’s latinum, gundanium, jumbonium, chelonium
And carbonite and corbomite and scrith and wonderflonium

There’s energon and metatron and flubber and shazamium
Naquadriah and claudia and also adamantium
Vizorium, rodinium, sakuradite, and nucleon
Stealth ore, ghost rock, Rearden metal, dragonbane, and phlogiston

Dilithium, trilithium, phazon, and amazonium
Bombastium, pizzazium, melange, and randomonium
Illudium Q-Thirty Six, ice nine, and thiotimoline
Oxium and octogen and polarite and soylent green.

There’s liquid schwartz and ruby-quartz and oxypheromalkahyde
Eridium, turbidium, darksteel, and meta-cyanide
Balthazate, bendezium, byzantium and magicite and
Protonite and grimacite and phostlite and there's solaranite

Froonium, bazoolium, bolognium, and beerium
Infernium, nuridium, and slood and atmosphereum
There's Caesiumfrancolithicmyxialobidium-
rixydixydoxidexidroxhide, and obsidium

There's mordite, morphite, nethicite, uru, and monopasium
And tylium and trinium and xen and upsidaisium
Jerktonium, afraidium, red rain, and raritanium
Cuendillar, celestial bronze, plasteel, and dalekanium

And then there’s “love,” the one that saved the world in The 5th Element --
But the fifth is really “boron,” if you’re wond’ring what the hell I meant.

about

Marian Call Alaska

Marian Call loves making music for you. She sounds a little like Joni Mitchell meets They Might Be Giants & Regina Spektor for bourbon & laughs. She hails from Alaska but can often be found touring North America and Europe, and she lives on Twitter. Her songs are quirky, geeky, eclectic acoustic confections that taste like vanilla-cinnamon-chipotle something. ... more
