Subject: Lyrics for ‘50’s kid song “Daniel the Spaniel” ?
Daniel the Spaniel - I loved this song in the early-mid ‘50’s - Had the record and played it till it my mother hated it. All I can recall:

Bow wow, meow,
Oh no, no, not that
It’s Daniel the Spaniel and he’s after the cat.

There goes that runaway loafer
Back to his hideaway
Under the sofa.

Something about a new hat; chasing a car or a mailman?

. . .but I’ll have the last laugh
On Daniel the Spaniel
‘Cuz it’s time for his bath

I would love to sing this to my grandson, but cannot find the lyrics lost in my memory and time.
