vamoose (verb) – To leave hurriedly.

Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : Vamoose meaning “leave in a hurry” has long been associated with cowboys of the American West and Southwest in the 19th century. The American pronunciation væˈmus is an approximate pronunciation of Spanish vamos “let’s go!” The Spanish form derives straightforwardly from Latin vādāmus, the 1st person plural subjunctive used as a “hortatory subjunctive” (a 1st person imperative) of vādere “to go.” Latin vādere is related to English wade. Vamoose entered English in the 19th century.
