Default Cron Job Question

I'm trying to set up a cron job. Here's my problem: I need to download something on my server...and then send that file (an mp3) to a second server. BUT, I'm having some firewall problems on the second server's domain (and I don't control that firewall!). I can't get in directly to the final destination machine. I need to ssh into the firewall...and then ssh into the final destination on that domain.

Here's what I have so far:

set -e

cd /downloads/
rm *.mp3
wget -nd -r -l1 --no-parent --no-passive-ftp -A.mp3 'ftp://user:password@server1'
sleep 10
ssh (this is the final destination, which is on the LAN of
sleep 10
Now, you might ask, why not download the mp3 directly to the final destination machine? I'd love to, but behind that firewall, I can't connect to that ftp site.

When I ssh into, the script above stops. Is what I'm trying to do possible? If so, what needs to be changed?
