Can Anyone Help with the Neapolitan – Italian Song "Peter Peter Pastela"?

Rachel wrote looking for help with an Italian song:

My Italian grandmother used to sing to me a song that went something like.

Peter peter pastela.
canavane canela
canela cususi
di dube
a te.

She was Neapolitan. I  have been looking for the actual words and meaning to this song for years! I would greatly appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks.

If anyone can help with this song, please let us know in the comments below.
