"They Called It Rock" as written by William Murray Bremner, Dave Edmunds, Nicholas Orain Lowe and Terry Williams....
They went and cut the record, the record hit the charts
Someone in the newspaper said that it was art
The disco Casanova had it heavy on the breath
The local teeny-bopper band was playing it to death

They called it rock

The telephones are ringing, the boys are getting hot
They're jettin' out to Rio and some other sunny spots
Some senorita says the singer sounds terrific
The personal appearances are stopping the traffic

They called it rock

Hey long distance, it's a rock and roll romance
CBS is gonna pay a great big advance
Hey Atlantic, come on take a chance
Arista say they love it but the kids can't dance to it

They cut another record, it never was a hit
Someone in the newspaper said it was shit
The drummer is a bookie, the singer is a whore
The bass player's selling clothes he never would have wore

They called it rock
