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 have to assume you mean at 2:13.
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!

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

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.

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).

When I'm in the shower with the door closed and the song is playing on my mp3 player and little speaker I have hooked to it, I hear "brother", but when I listen to it all other times, I hear "cousin".
I was listening to this song this morning and thinkng about how John would do gestures imitating crippled people. I see that someone eariler in this thread had put those two ideas together.

I could have sworn that it said cousin in the booklet in my CD copy of Imagine.
Then again, I could B wrong. What do I know?

Does he really say "take your clothes off" before the piano solo? If so, is that meant in the literal or metaphical (ie you can't hide your true self) sense? Probably a bit of both.
Sounds like 'take your clothes off' to me, as well.

Always sounded like "Take it cousin" to me, a call for Nicky and the solo.
