cantonese nursery rhyme 'dim chung chung, chung chung fi...'

Hi,

does anyone know the rest of the words to this rhyme? My 12 mth old can do the action of touching her index fingers, but sadly her dad can't get past the first line:

'dim chung chung, chung chung fi, fi fi fi...'

thanks,
sh

點蟲蟲, 蟲蟲飛。飛去邊﹖飛去荔枝畿。荔枝熟, 摘滿一包袱。
dim chung chung, chung chung fei. fei hoey bin? fei hoey lai ji gei. lai ji suk, jaak muun yat bao fuk. (Not proper Cantonese romanisation)

Almost word for word translation:
point insect insect, insect insect fly. fly to where? fly to lichee area. lichee ripe, pick (and fill up) full a haversack (bag).

Other versions:

點蟲蟲,蟲蟲飛...飛去邊,飛去荔枝基!荔枝熟,無埞(deng = 地方)伏(buk);伏去邊?伏去你個鼻哥窿!!!

點蟲蟲,蟲蟲飛
深呼吸,透大氣
摸摸頭,摸摸鼻
郁郁你隻腳趾尾

點蟲蟲,蟲蟲飛
深呼吸,透大氣
拍拍肚皮拍拍脾
轉轉車輪伸伸利

點蟲蟲,蟲蟲飛
深呼吸,透大氣
擰擰pat pat掂掂地
大家喜歡你!
