** In
"The Elements" Elements", he rhymed all the chemical element names from the Periodic Table (at least, all the ones that were known at the time; several more have been discovered since [[note]] Lehrer knew this was going to happen -- the last words of the song are "These are the only ones of which the news has come to Harvard, and there may be many others but they haven't been [[PainfulRhyme discahvered"]].[[/note]]) and set them to the tune of the MajorGeneralSong.
**
"New Math."Math".
** His rendition of "Clementine" on ''Music/AnEveningWastedWithTomLehrer'' includes a final verse InTheStyleOf Gilbert and Sullivan. While he calls it a "rousing finale", the song is actually a patter song.



* One famous instances of a Gilbert and Sullivan-inspired patter song is "The Elements Song" by Music/TomLehrer; he rhymed all the chemical element names from the Periodic Table (at least, all the ones that were known at the time; several more have been discovered since [[note]] Lehrer knew this was going to happen - the last words of the song are "These are the only [elements] of which the news has come to Harvard, and there may be many others but they haven't been [[PainfulRhyme discahvered"]].[[/note]]) and set them to the tune of the MajorGeneralSong.
** Another example by Lehrer is his view of what Gilbert and Sullivan would do with ''Clementine.'' While he calls it a "rousing finale", the song is actually a patter song.

** There was a second contest involving the song, this time with free records given out with local newspapers, one of which would be a winner. Another variation was to press the song on records of varying stability, and only the one that wouldn't warp at the end would be the winner.
