Kid of the 80s

Love it… Matthew Wilder lip syncing to “Break My Stride” on Solid Gold.

Included on Wilder’s 1983 album, I Don’t Speak the Language, the single went to number five on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number four in the UK in January/February 1984. On the US Cash Box chart, the single reached the number two position, where it remained for two weeks in early February.


Last night I had the strangest dream
I sailed away to China
In a little row boat to find ya
And you said you had to get your laundry cleaned
Didn’t want no one to hold you What does that mean
And you said

Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down, oh no
I got to keep on movin’
Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
I’m running and I won’t touch ground
Oh no, I got to keep on movin’

You’re on the road and now you pray it lasts
The road behind was rocky
But now you’re feeling cocky
You look at me and you see your past
Is that the reason why you’re runnin’ so fast
And she said

Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down, oh no
I got to keep on moving
Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
I’m running and I won’t touch ground
Oh no, I got to keep on moving

Never let another girl like you work me over
Never let another girl like you drag me under
If I meet another girl like you, I will tell her
Never want another girl like you, have to say, oh

Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down
Oh no, oh no, I got to keep on moving
Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
I’m running and I won’t touch ground
Oh no, I got to keep on movin’

Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down
Oh no, oh no, I got to keep on moving
Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
I’m running and I won’t touch ground
Oh no, I got to keep on movin’

Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
Nobody gonna slow me down
Oh no, I got to keep on moving
Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
I’m running and I won’t touch ground
Oh no, I got to keep on movin’

Ain’t nothin’ gonna break-a my stride
Nobody’s gonna slow me down, oh no
