Not the exact version you wanted, but similar:

From YouTube:

BE CAREFUL HOW YOU VOTE
As sung by Chicago Beau

SPOKEN: Hey, I'm gon' tell you all the same thing Sunnyland Slim been tryin' to tell you for years. Be careful how you vote.

I'm warning you people: be careful how you vote.
Yes, I'm warning you people: be careful how you vote.
Well, when you go to that votin' booth, Lord, be sure they don't cut your throat.

I'm only gonna say one thing: presidents say the same.
About how much money you got, can you play they game?
Now I'm warning you people: please be careful how you vote.
Yeah, the one they say gon' do something for you, they will know if you got the vote.
Can you vote for them? ...

I'm warning you people: be careful how you vote.
Oh! I'm warning you: be careful how you vote.
The one say they gonna do so much for you, Lord, they don't wanna touch your vote.
I tell you how it feels.

Yeah, I'm tellin' you: alderman, president, they the same.
Ah, yes, I'm warnin' you: alderman on up to the president, they the same.
They want to know if you can help them make some money. Lord, your life never change....

Yeah, some say they help the blind. Some say they help the poor.
(Help the blind! Help the poor!)
Well, there's some say they help the blind. Some say they help the poor.
(Help the blind! Help the poor!)
Yeah, but if you look at they paycheck, don't you see ...

Alderman say one thing. President say the same:
"I want you to get in the booth, child, and write in my name."

Hey-hey-hey-hey. Be careful how you vote.
The one you think you can trust, Lord, they the one that cut your throat.
(Watch it, people! Look out, people!)
The one you think you can trust, Lord, they the one that cut your throat.
