"Look at Your Game, Girl" is a song written by Charles Manson and recorded in September 1967. It appeared on his album Lie: The Love and Terror Cult which was released in 1970 to help pay for his defense during the murder trial. Manson was convicted and sentenced to death (later commuted to life in prison). He has been eligible for parole since 1978, but as of 2012 has been denied at each hearing.

Manson plays the song only with an acoustic guitar.

A cover version appeared on Guns N' Roses' 1993 album "The Spaghetti Incident?", upon lead singer Axl Rose's demand, despite protest from his bandmates. Rose along with Dizzy Reed (on percussion) are the only members of Guns N' Roses to perform on the track, with the acoustic guitar played by Carlos Booy. Manson's share of the royalties was assigned to the family of Manson victim Wojciech Frykowski.[1]
