"A lot of the lyrics came out of really weird conversations that we were having in the studio. We had this fatuous argument about how many ways there were to skin a cat. The inanity was staggering [laughs]. And someone said, "There are definitely six different ways." And it just seemed like a nice title because of the 6/8 time." Found this in a Rolling Stone article
I'm just going to throw this one in here since the image goes with this song... I came across this while looking for something completely different (cure lyrics that have to do with licking).... when I read this misheard lyric I nearly lost it.
(some of these are pretty good. others... well...)
