****I'm pretty sure "willing for a dentist to be drilling" is not proper.****

I don't see anything wrong with that particular part of the lyric. What error do you perceive?

However, this thread has pointed out to me that there are actually THREE grammatical errors in the one sentence "I'd be equally as willing for a dentist to be drilling than to ever let a woman in my life." And the three errors are:

1. "equally as" is redundant; "equally willing" would be correct.
2. "than to" is incorrect; "as to" would be correct
3. "to ever let" is incorrect, because it's a split infinitive; "ever to let" would be correct
