ache my bones


New Member
Hi everyone,

There's this famous song by Queen called Somebody to Love and there's a line that goes (in bold),
"I work hard
Every day of my life
I work till I ache my bones"

I understand that it means that he works until his bones are literally aching, but why does this line have such a strange structure? Is it acceptable to say "I ache my bones/head/legs, etc."? Can one ache something, so to speak?
