GAM’BOL. n.s.


GAM’BOL. n.s. [from the verb.]
I. A skip; a hop; a leap for joy.
A gentleman had got a favourite spaniel, that would be still
toying and leaping upon him, and playing a thousand pretty
gambols. L’Estrange’s Fables.
Bacchus through the conquer’d Indies rode,
And beasts in gambols frisk’d before their honest god. Dryden.
2. A frolick; a wild prank.
For who did ever play his gambo’s,
With such insufferable rambles? Hudibras, p. iii. cant. 2.
