It's not working because you didn't pass the Woocoomerce's Product category taxonomy.

By default get_categories() function will returns all terms data of default category taxonomy, if you did't mention specific taxonomy slug inside the arguments list. So, To retrieve the terms data of any specific taxonomy, We must have to pass the slug of that taxonomy.

Woocommerce uses product_cat custom taxonomy to store all Product's categories.

function gaga_lite_category_lists( ) {

     $categories = get_categories(

        array(
            'hide_empty' =>  0,
            //'exclude'  =>  1,
            'taxonomy'   =>  'product_cat' // mention taxonomy here. 
        )
     );


     $category_lists = array();

     $category_lists[0] = __( 'Select Category' , 'gaga-lite' );

     foreach( $categories as $category ){

          $category_lists[$category->term_id] = $category->name;
     } 

     return $category_lists;

}

Function reference get_categories
