Mensagem:  A NOTCH is an ENTALHE, right?  It is a way of counting things.  If you see five cows, you put five notches on a stick.  If you kill seven men, you cut seven notches on the wooden handle of your revolver.

The idea in the lyrics, in my opinion, is that the composer is saying, "I am just another romantica experience, another lover, another man, another conquest."

The composer is NOT talking about real notches in a real belt.  The term is used for its symbolism.
