it don't have a price or it doesn't have a price ?

Hi. I took this quotation from the song of Lady Gaga - Paparazzi .

''But this photo of us, it don't have a price''

I thought it should rather be ''it doesn't have a price''

Can You tell me how is it ? I'm a little bit confused....

Thank You :)

    Song lyrics often use slang and sub-standard grammar. By imitating street language they are intended to appear 'cool'.

    You are right.

    Songs often violate the rules of correct English when they need a word with a specific number of syllables to fit the tune or the rhythm. That is the case here.
