Old song: She's my peri-weri-weri-weri-winkle...

Does anyone know this song, and where it's from? My gran used to sing it to me in the late 80s / early 90s. Google isn't throwing anything up:

Sheeee's myyyy....
Peri-weri-weri-weri-winkle,
My jeely in (and?) my jam,
My hairy (mackanary?),
My bonny wee bit spam.
She's my bunch of tulips and my
Cock-a-leekie too,
(Don't remember this line)
(Don't remember this line either!)

It's the type of song you'd imagine Dick van Dyke singing in Mary Poppins, but the 'wee' in it suggests it's a Scottish.
