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")

(verse:)
Bidi Bidi Ba-ha
Bidi Bidi Ba-ha
Bidi Bidi Bidi Bidi Bidi Bidi Ba-ha
Bidi Bidi Bidi Bidi Bidi Bidi Ba-ha

(repeat verse)

Alright, Oh if I had just one wish
If I had one wish
I would like to be a fish
and I'll swim swim swim
Oh under the sea I'd be so free
and I'll say, I'll say
I'd swim swim swim,
under the sea I'd be so free,
I'll say, I'll say

(repeat verse-2x's)

Ritmo

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".
