Match the lyrics to the artist

Wherein does this help?

Rather than do the usual guess the artist/song quiz, I thought I'd add a little twist. I give you lyrics and I give you the artists. Can you match them? I think there's one, maybe two easy ones, so how many do you need to know before it turns into a logic puzzle?

If you know the song, that's worth an 1/8 point good will that may be redeemable towards warm regards at the next swap meet.

  1. I lick your frozen treasure you cup my furry bees
    But one bee bubbles over your fleshy brimming cup
  2. There goes the train moving down the line
    taking my baby away feels so bad I could cry
  3. I'm full of good intentions
    Like I never was before
  4. Come on and hate me
    If you dare like every mother's son
    Good riddance to you
    All I say it had to be done
  5. Words won't find no right solution
    To the planet earth's pollution
    Say the right word, make a million
  6. Pretty things get in my car
    Take them flying, it's not far
    Take in handsome, take in me
    Look good in my steel machine
  7. I destroyed a bond of friendship and respect
    Between the only people left who'd even look me in the eye
    Now I laugh and make a fortune
    Off the same ones that I tortured
  8. Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take, I said
    Doctor, to relieve this bellyache, I said
  9. He watches over
    Everything we see
    Into the water
    Into the truth
    In your reflection
  10. You're wondering now,
    What to do, now you know this is the end
    You're wondering how,
    You will pay, for the way you did behave

I think No. 9 comes from "He Lives in You" from the Broadway production of The Lion King.
