    Is this sentence correct?

    What do you came for? or what did you come for?

    Is it possible to say "What do you came for?"

    Thx

    More gramatically; For what did you come?

    I have seen it in a lyric.
    This song: Apocalyptica - Path
    In that case songs are meaningless. :)

    (Not a teacher)

    The sentence isn't correct.

    Either Apocalyptica (a band that I enjoy, thoroughly) got it wrong and never noticed, or they did it intentionally for a reason I don't know.

    They definately do sing 'what do you came for?', and it is definately wrong. The first verb has tensing in verb phrases, as far as I'm aware.
