Assunto:  Love don't/doesn't ...
 
Mensagem:  Not only art, it is known that some speakers do not use does in questions and negatives and neither do they use -s in for Present Simple with he,she,it. We see this a lot in our native Portuguese.

The question would be if the one who wrote the song/lyrics do not themselves use does and -s or if they are trying to emulate this way of speaking.
