When the composer of a song can't be determined due to the song being exceptionally old or untraceable the way many folk songs and nursery rhymes are, the song is ascribed to the author "Traditional." This is a list of the songs that contain music with untraceable sources.

Unlike the other composer pages, this list is sorted by song title (excluding definite articles like "The" and "La") rather than release date.
