regular expression question

Hi. I am trying to filter out lines with just a few words (6 words or less) and this can also include lines like
1:13  Add to Added to queue
Tokio Hotel - Automatic
n0547 to n0549 queue for

I tried this but this is not exactly right

next if (($record =~ m{^\s*\w*\d*\s*\w*\d*\s*\w*\d*\s*\w*\d*$}));

Any other suggestions?
Thank you.

print "6 words or less" if (()=$record =~/\b\w+\b/g) <= 6;
# Or maybe
 print "6 words or less" if (()=$record =~/\S+/g) <= 6;
depending on what you count as a word

Thanks. Using what you said,
would this work

next if (($record =~ m{/\b\w+\b/g}));

next if (($record =~ m{/\b\w+\b/g}));
will skip records with 1 word or more

next if (($record =~ m{/\b\w+\b/g}) <= 6);

Will that skip lines with 6 or fewer words?
No, but
next if (()=$record =~/\b\w+\b/g) <= 6;
