I'm no grammarian, but are you saying that this lyric:

"I'd be equally as willing for a dentist to be drilling than to ever let a woman in my life"

Should be "I'd be equally as willing for a dentist to be drilling as ever to let a woman in my life"?

Making the "as" statements parallel and avoiding splitting the infinitive in "to let"? Are those the errors?
