You're surely meaning 'the Rouken Glen' -- now a popular park on Glasgow's southside (with a butterfly sanctuary amongst other attractions).
And the version of 'The Dundee Weaver' that I learned had
"So I'll go back to Dundee, looking bonny, young and fair.
I'll lace my corsets tightly and tie back my bonny brown hair.
I'll lace my corsets tightly, to mak' my body look sma' -
An' wha will ken by my rosy cheeks, my thingummyjig's awa'?"
