The Elements song needs an update

In light of the new elements officially added to the periodic table this week, Tom Leher's well-known "The Elements" song from the 1950s will need an update.

The original song can be viewed below just in case you had forgotten or wanted to have a go at memorizing the words.

The song itself actually only includes the elements up to nobelium, the 102nd element which was the total number of discovered elements at the time of writing. There are now 118 elements with the latest four additions.
