I remember when I first heard of this song, my friend said it was "This song is just six words long", even though I knew that it was listed as "(This Song's Just) Six Words Long".

Well when Al is singing it, it does sound like he's saying, "This song is just six words long", but if you listen really closely you can tell it's "song's"
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I still hold to the idea that he says "is just". It adds that level of irony. It's hard to tell, but I can definitely hear it.

Yeah, "song's" tends not to be as disyllabic as Al made it.

I've always loved this song though and found it to be very funny and clever. Especially if you've heard Got My Mind Set On You.

Exactly what I thought before hearing it. Exactly. |)

Why wasn't he thrilled about it?

I love this song! :D The lyrics are super amusing. I love the "I gotta fill time...three minutes worth of time...oh how will I fill so much time..." part the best.

It's one of my top 20 favorites! I don't know if anyone posted this already but the song is 360 words long...
