What does the phrase "bounce the moon" as found in this song mean?

    It's quite literal. Have you ever bounced a ball? He's saying he'd like to bounce the moon just like a big balloon. – Jim Nov 25 '13 at 1:57

"Bounce the moon" is not an idiom. It could fall under hyperbole, because it is impossible to bounce the moon.

The next line is "Just like a big toy balloon". This is under simile, as he wants to bounce the moon like a big toy balloon.
