Hi again...:)
Now i am really confused, unfortunately.My question is :when do we say ''She doesn't know...'' and when ''She don't know'' ? And what about using ''knows'' instead of ''know'' because...it's the the singular of the third person:SHE
When and...when?:-|

"She don't know." is wrong! Don't say it.
Say 'She knows.' and 'She doesn't know.'

But...i have heard this ''She don't know'' in a song and i'm sure about what i've heard. How can they be wrong?

''She don't know'' is not wrong but it's a bad English.

Of course you can hear these mistakes in songs
Actually, singers' objective is not to pay attention to grammar rules but to get the perfect rhyme(the second line rhymes with the first)
They drop letters just to make words and music go together
I always find these errors
So, beware songs. Hear them and pay attention to pronountiation(a good practice for your pronounciation) but not to grammar
2006's explanation is right ,take it
