Mensagem:  "I won't loose no sleep." is just bad grammar.  The correct way is "I won't loose any sleep." but people write songs the way the language is spoken.  All sorts of  people use the double negative even though they know it's wrong.  Probably they don't think before they speak.  In the case of a song writer he/she is probably trying to fit the lyrics to a piece of music.  Or, he/she just wants to write the way many people and teenagers talk.
