The study of song genres carried until recently has been marked by a prevailing orientation towards the 'text'. Within the scope of genre classifications, hybrid forms appeared as ambivalent and fragmentary. In this article the view on the traditional song genres is enriched by boundary genre forms. These enable us to study the process of how song genres exhibiting a different level of relationship and interconnection become hybridised at the level of song lyrics and music-style signs.
