Can Anyone Help with a Chinese Song called Li Fa Shi?

Monique asked if someone could help with the correct pinyin and translation of the Chinese kids song below:

理发师 = Li Fa Shi

理发店的老爷爷呀咔嚓咔嚓
手里拿着一把剪刀咔嚓咔嚓
哎 就快成功啦
快快喷雾沙沙沙沙沙

下面一位请你过来咔嚓咔嚓
镜子里面看一看呀咔嚓咔嚓
哎 就快成功啦
快快喷雾沙沙沙沙沙

Here’s the Pinyin Monique emailed me:

lǐ fà shī

lǐ fā diàn dì / dí / de lǎoyé yé yā kǎchā kǎchā
shǒu lǐ ná zháo / zhe / zhuó yī bà / bǎ jiǎndāo kǎchā kǎchā
āi / ài jiù kuài chénggōng lā
kuài kuài pēn wù shā shā shā shā shā

xiàmiàn yī wèi qǐng nǐ guòlái kǎchā kǎchā
jìngzǐ lǐmiàn kàn / kān yī kàn / kān yā kǎchā kǎchā
āi / ài jiù kuài chénggōng lā
kuài kuài pēn wù shā shā shā shā shā

Here’s the English translation I’ve come up with so far:

The Barbershop

In the barbershop, grandfather, click, click,
Takes a pair of scissors in his hand, click, click,
Quickly to succeed he
Sprays in a big hurry, spritz, spritz, spritz.

Then asks you to come in, click, click,
Take a look at the mirror inside, click, click,
Quickly to succeed he
Sprays in a big hurry, spritz, spritz, spritz.

We welcome any help with the translation and pinyin version.

Thanks in advance!

    The Barbershop

    The old man in the barbershop, click, click,
    Takes a pair of scissors in his hand, click, click,
    Almost make it
    He sprays in a big hurry, spritz, spritz, spritz.

    Then asks another one to come in, click, click,
    Take a look at the mirror inside, click, click,
    the hair will be done soon
    He sprays in a big hurry, spritz, spritz, spritz.
