The translation that is here for the song is actually the lyrics to the english version of the song. There is an English version at:
http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/dbz/clhcle.htm
as well, but it is the Philipines version while the one submitted as the translation is done by the original Japanese artist.
While the English version of the song is very faithful to the original lyrics, there are some obvious artistic liberties.

Just comparing the first stanzas:
Breaking throuhg[sic] the shining clouds, I'm gonna fly away! ( Fly away! )
Spreading through my body, feel the power through my soul!
Kicked in the face. The earth is mad as a fire brigade! ( Fire brigade! )
Can't you feel it building up for her to blow?

And a more literal translation:

Break through the shining clouds
Fly away! (Fly away)
A panorama is spreading through my body
The Earth gets mad from a kick to the face (Kick to the face)
Making volcanoes erupt

So here's my whole, more literal translation:

Break through the shining clouds
Fly away! (Fly away)
A panorama is spreading through my body
The Earth gets mad from a kick to the face (Kick to the face)
Making volcanoes erupt
In some melting polar ice
If there were a dinosaur inside, I'd want to train it to ride a ball

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
No matter what happens, it'll be fine!
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
No matter how hard your chest claps
The Genki Dama will boom... Sparking!

A roller coaster swoops through the sky
and falls to a garden of panic
The scenery pleasantly turns upside down
I can even see the undersides of the mountains
There's no time to be worried
Somewhere, a "surprise!" is lurking and I want to meet it!

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
My head's empty so I can fill with dreams
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
Smiling, I'm ultra-Z
Today too! aye-yae-yae-yae-yae!

CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
No matter what happens, it'll be fine!
CHA-LA HEAD-CHA-LA
No matter how hard your chest claps
The Genki Dama will boom... Sparking!
