"Evil Woman" (sometimes further titled "Don't Play Your Games with Me") is a song written and recorded by Minneapolis-based band Crow that appeared on their 1969 album Crow Music. It reached number 19 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Pop chart.

It was covered in 1970 by Black Sabbath and was released as their first single as "Evil Woman." The song also appeared on the band's debut album, Black Sabbath, later that year.

Despite being Black Sabbath's first single, "Evil Woman" was excluded from their debut album in the United States, being replaced by its B-side "Wicked World". The song was first officially released in the US in 2002, on the compilation Symptom of the Universe: The Original Black Sabbath 1970-1978.
