One day I was singing it (around 14) and I was like, "rhythms doesn't make any sense, it must be river."  However, I don't recall when I realized that it was chasing and not Jason.

Okay you used logic.  Rivers and Lakes was a better matchThumbs Up  And chasing always did sound like Jason to keep it real and "Chasing Waterfalls" would only really be recognizable by a kid if they already knew the saying. 

My moms version would be "sit cho naive ass down".  She is a poet!!!

Omg I thought the exact same thing

if you're interested, def. go read all the research on AAVE. some ppl dismiss it, but it has a recognizable syntax structure and complex verb usage. i think one of the biggest debates is whether AAVE is really a dialact as opposed to a somewhat separate language.

NPR has a blog called "code switch" that is pretty good, and actually has (mostly) intelligent comments (on the actual blog, not the FB comments)

there's also a book called "Shifting" that talks about it in regards to AA women, but this was published before "code switch" became the recognized word, so its referred to as "shifting" in the book.
 
It's Ebonics plain and simple .. the language of (underclassed) AAs. Confused
 
Geesh, they have been trying to legitimize this language for the pass 30 years but to me it's the equal to a GED (a Good Enough Diploma) for Blacks or taking the 'little yellow bus' to school.
 
What .. they don't have to strive for excellence ... they can just speak their own 'special' language because that is 'Good enough' for Black folks. Duh! (in other words - they are not gonna do anything with their lives anyway so .. that's 'Good Enough'.
 
I don't see any 'Captains of Industry' or movers and shakers in the world that can only ... speak Ebonics.ConfusedIt's a dead end language.
