I definitely hear "Take it cousin".

My mind is far away, off in Pepperland…

I have the Imagine album on vinyl. And since i first heard the song, I always heard "take it brother". Now I sort of hear "take yer clothes off".

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

"Take it cousin" is what I hear, absolutely.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I hear "take it cousin" as in; OK, your turn to solo. This website cites it as "take it brother". I still hear "cousin".

Same here, cousin!

Wow, the casual Von has to catch up on reviewing his posts; he is almost four years behind.  I assume the business Von is more current.

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'. Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake, 1997

We both move at our own pace...and when we see a thread from four years ago that we didn't contribute to, we must add our 4 cents worth.

The following people thank Von Bontee for this post:

I've always heard 'brother', but upon just listening closely, I'd swear there is an 's' in the middle of the word (as in couSin).

Half of what I say is meaningless...

Now I'm only 52 and all I wanna do is bugaloo

Another vote for "cousin".

Am I the only one who hears "closer"? I clearly hear an L at the start and an S in the middle.
