Rashi in Mishlay (31,31), the source for the song, says that the song is talking about the Torah. Where in the text of the song itself are the proofs for this theory and explanation of how the text indicates it?

I think you mean 31:10 and not 31:31 –  rony Nov 10 '11 at 14:14
here its 31;31 chabad.org/library/bible_cdo/aid/16402/showrashi/true –  simchastorah Nov 10 '11 at 14:19
You are right. At 31:31 he adds that it can be explained as a mashal, starting with pasuk 10, saying that the Eshet Chail is the Torah. –  rony Nov 10 '11 at 14:33

Rashi (31:31). He says that you can explain it as a mashal. He then starts explaining each pasuk once again.If you follow his commentary he explains how the text can be explained either as speaking of the Torah or about those that are asukim (involved) with the Torah.
