How To Install Songbird Using GetDeb On Ubuntu 13.04

I was looking for a way to download Songbird but the development for the Linux version has ended because of funding problems.

I tried to search for the sources packages but they have been removed from the internet and the songbirdnest.com development site is taken offline. This is probably the last stable version to be found on the internet and i hope that GetDeb will keep Songbird in their programs list.
