The tune is by Flanders and Swann, it's The Hippopotamus, although the words are obviously a new version.

So far as I know, Flanders and Swann never wrote any song about particle physics.

However, they did write a song about a hippopotamus, the music being used in the Cern choir's song, and lyrics written by Danuta Orlowska of Cern.

The Hippopotamus song is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kN0WPwFD9is&feature=related
