What does "Don't go chasing waterfalls mean"?



Answers:
The song of that name by TLC seems to be talking about waterfalls being extremely beautiful but also very dangerous. The songs tells the story of people who each get into situations that seem attractive, but end up being destructive to them. Rather than chasing these dangerous waterfalls, the song advises instead to stick to the safer ground of lakes and rivers.
i think ti means don't og chasing something that you can't catch. in general- waterfalls are constantly moving, always going somewhere- to a river, a stream, a trickle of water- but eventually they end up in an expanse of ocean. and yet how could you catch up with a waterfall? do focus on one wave of water would be impossible; they are constantly moving, and it is impossible to concentrate on one point without losing yourself. so it basically means, don't chase afetr something that you won't be able to catch. Not sure but this first time I ever heard that expression or something like that was a Paul McCartney song, but I am sure that the expression has been around longer than that:

Don't Go Jumping Waterfalls In my opinion: You will never find the beginning or the end, so don't waste your time. You will never find your answer to a "waterfall" question. i agree with the frist answer totaly do not go after things that look good but chould actually get u killed
