Songs or lamentations for the dead.
After the funeral we all sang elegies for our dear, departed friend.

Get the Elegies mug.
noun, countable
used in Japanese BBSs to refer to a sad message which will be deleted by the poster to conceal his own jibaku; named after a JET from Tennessee, USA
Dai: Jibaku? Are you deleting all of your messages again? Yes or No?!
David: It's strange that the keyboard automatically and repeatedly types characters, "paranoia nutter looney."
Dai: Give your answer to the simple question.
David: The OS displays a Delete button and not Yes and No buttons in any dialogbox. Why does the mouse click on a Delete button automatically?
Dai: ... Tennessee Elegy. Dance a waltz!
