Лучше добрые друзья, чем гиганты Г и Я

Никак не могу найти в сети русский перевод стихотворения А.А.Милна (автора "Винни-Пуха") под названием The Four Friends (для удобства воспроизвожу текст под катом):

Ernst was an elephant, a great big fellow,
Leonard was a lion with a six-foot tail,
George was a goat, and his beard was yellow,
And James was a very small snail.

Leonard had a stall, and a great big strong one,
Ernest had a manger, and its wall were thick,
George found a pen, but I think it was the wrong one,
And James sat down on a brick.

Ernest started trumpeting, and cracked his manger,
Leonard started roaring, and shivered his stall,
James gave the huffle of a snail in danger
And nobody heard him at all.

Ernest started trumpeting, and raised such a rumpus,
Leonard started roaring and trying to kick,
James went a journey with the goat's new compass
And he reached the end of his brick.

Ernst was an elephant and very well-intentioned,
Leonard was a lion with a brave new tail,
George was a goat, as I think I have mentioned,
But James was only a snail.

Из перевода помню только слова "А Джон был улиткой простой" (в имени, впрочем, не уверен).

Никто не поможет?
