You are correct, "doesnt" is the grammatically correct way of writing what he meant, but in slang and in song lyrics, sometimes you hear "don't."

I teach english and spanish and I always encourage my students to use songs as a tool to learn english. It´s an excellent way to improve listening and pronunciation as well as reading (lyrics).
However, I tell them to carefully choose the songs because many songs have slang on it (wanna, gotta, dunno, yeah, etcetera.).
I always recommend to start with slow songs (love songs/ballads).
When they are beginners, I tell them to avoid Rap/Hip-Hop because those songs are usually the ones who have more slang on it.
