In the song The Miracle at the time 2.48, they are saying something.

Does anyone know what they're saying?

Thanks!

If we're going to get really pedantic, like our little firecracker una999 has, I don't hear any first "The", but it may be obscured by some music or something.

Actually, they say "start smoking marihuana" in a muffled voice. It was a huge scandal at the time.

Correct. And the "the" is not only very quiet, but also quickly said and blended with "wonders" as if the two words are one.
