Selena performed this song live to the beat of "Bidi, Bidi, Bom, Bom" on February 7, 1993 in the Memorial Coliseum in Corpus Christi, TX.
which was released as "Selena Live" and won Selena a Grammy.
Although this version has not yet been released, hopefully the Quintanilla family releases the song as well as the "Selena Live" concert on dvd.
Here is the closest I could come to the lyrics.
(known to some as "One Wish" or "Itty Bitty Bubbles")
Selena would practice and warm up her vocal cords by making different sounds which then turned out to a song we know as "One Wish".
Selena re-wrote the song into a Spanish tune along side band member of "Los Dinos"; Pete Astudillo
and named it "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom" which was released in her 1994 album "Amor Prohibido".

According to Texas Monthly, the song was created by accident during one of Quintanilla's sound checks. Her husband and the band's guitarist Chris Perez and her brother A.B. Quintanilla were riffing on different sounds when the Tejano queen joined in with "itty bitty bubbles." One of the backup singers Pete Astudillo remembers the Mexican-American star singing, "If I was a fish, under the sea, I would swim, swim, swim to you," to the beat of her hit song. Astudillo eventually went on to pen the lyrics, changing the focus from water and making it about the heartbeat of a girl in love: "Bidi bidi bom bom."
