    What PowerPoint version are you using? If you are using 2002/XP or 2003, you
    can use motion path to create the bouncing effect.

    Click Slide Show > Custom Animation.
    Click on the ball, click Add effect > Motion Path > Draw Custom Path >
    Scribble.
    Draw the path out.

    Alternately, you can click Add effect > Motion Path > More Motion Paths >
    Bounce Right.

    If you're going to have the song file playing while the ball is animated over
    the words/syllables, it's tough to exactly coordinate the two elements to
    re-create the old "Mitch Miller" effect. I'm a choral director. That's a
    great idea though!
    Hope this helps!!!

    Bob,

    I did this a long time ago. This is how it was done.

    I edited the standard windows cursor pointer to a red ball

    I manually moved the cursor while the song was sung.

    Cheers
