Real Lyrics -> Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics -> Rex Harrison (in My Fair Lady)

Song lyrics aren't supposed to be a fountain of perfect english, but on the other hand some are just so atrocious, they need to get called out. We're not looking for sentance fragments or the word ain't since there are too many instances to count.

Bad Grammar in Song Lyrics, Rex Harrison (in My Fair Lady)

Check out the index.

Rex Harrison (in My Fair Lady)'s, "I'm an Ordinary Man"
The Lyrics:
I'd be equally as willing for a dentist to be drilling than to ever let a woman in my life
"Equally as" is redundant. "Than" should be "as." (Keep in mind that the speaker is a world-famous expert on the English language.) A simple fix would be: "I'd be every bit as willing for a dentist to be drilling as to ever let a woman in my life."
