Not in the near future, no.  There are people who intend to package it¹,
but like many Mozilla packages Songbird is rather complex.  And the
usual trademark issues with Mozilla apply to it as well.

I don't think so.  On http://getsongbird.com/download/ you can obtain
binaries for 32-bit and 64-bit GNU/Linux that should work fine on Lenny.
The Ubuntu builds are really a joke, they are little more than just the
official binary tarballs repackaged.
