Lyrics

Rōmaji

Hikaru kumo o tsukinuke Fly Away (Fly Away) 
Karadajû ni hirogaru panorama
Kao o kerareta chikyû ga okotte (okotte)
Kazan o bakuhatsu saseru

Toketa kôri1 no naka ni
Kyôryû ga itara tamanori shikomitai ne

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
Nani ga okite mo kibun wa heno-heno kappa
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
Mune ga pachi-pachi suru hodo
Sawagu Genki-Dama...Sparking!

Sora o kyûkôka Jet Coaster (Coaster)
Ochite yuku yo panikku no sono2 e
Keshiki sakasa ni naru to yukai sa (yukai sa)
Yamasae oshiri ni mieru

Nayamu jikan wa nai yo
Dokoka ni hisomu “bikkuri!” ni aitai kara

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
Atama karappo no hô ga yume tsumekomeru
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
Egao urutora zetto de
Kyô mo ai-yai-yai-yai-yai

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
Nani ga okite mo kibun wa heno-heno kappa
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
Mune ga pachi-pachi suru hodo
Sawagu Genki-Dama...Sparking!

English

Piercing the shining clouds, I fly away (fly away),
While a panorama spreads through my body.
Kicked in the face, the Earth gets angry (gets angry),
And makes a volcano explode!

Within the melted polar ice,
If there’s a dinosaur, I want to train it to balance on a ball!

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
No matter what happens, I feel like it’s no big deal!
CHA-LA HEAD CHA-LA
Just as loudly as my heart pounds,
The Genki-Dama roars...Sparking!

Diving through the sky on a roller coaster (coaster),
I fall into a paradise of panic!
The scenery turns upside-down and I cheer up (cheer up),
’Cause the mountains even look like butts!1

There’s no time for worrying,
’Cause there’s a suprise hidden somewhere, and I wanna find it!

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
I’d rather have my head be empty, so I can stuff it with dreams!
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
With a smile that’s Ultra-Z,
Even today is ai-yai-yai-yai-yai...

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
No matter what happens, I feel like it’s no big deal!
CHA-LA HEAD CHA-LA
Just as loudly my heart pounds,
The Genki-Dama roars...Sparking!

Trivia

  • Kageyama considers the song to be his best work as people are always happy when they sing it.[2]
