The theme song of the Disney Channel original animated television series American Dragon: Jake Long, titled "The Chosen One", was written and composed by Billy Lincoln, Kat Green and Michael Gurley. It is performed by Mavin in Season 1 and by the Jonas Brothers in Season 2.

Intro

Zooming to apartments, the lead skateboarding. The lead's parents kissed, became clumsy. The lead's sister caked. Still skateboarding and see his friends. The lead's friends are unimpressed. The lead became dirty while the taxi moves the mud. The lead's friends skateboarding and Rose falls in love for the lead. The lead morphs into a dragon. A dog and the lead's master see the villains. The lead shocked and morphed again. Rose pulled a dragon's tail. The dragon breathes fire to a dog and the lead's master burnt. The dragon flies and see his fantasy friends. The dragon roped into apartments' clothespin. The clips of each episode featured. The show's logo pops up and the lead's friends are performing music. Rose walks the stage, kissing a lead and morphed into a mop. The lead is doing cleanup and hitting the show's logo as a gong.

The Jonas Brothers recorded Season 2's theme music. The Season 2 intro was modified from Season 1 to fit the new animation style, adding billed credits.

Lyrics

The lyrics between the Season 1 and Season 2 intros are basically the same, although some lines have been modified for Season 2. Those modifications are minor and almost unnoticable, although Jake's solo was rewritten completely, but still stays close to the same concept as the original version.

Season 1

He's cool, he's hot like a frozen sun
He's young and fast, he's the chosen one
People we're not braggin'
He's the American Dragon

He's gonna stop his enemies with his Dragon power
Dragon teeth, Dragon tail, burning Dragon fire
A real live wire
American Dragon ("Dragon Up!")
American Dragon
He's the American Dragon (breakdown with the Dragon)

His skills are getting faster
With Grandpa the master
His destiny what's up G?
It's showtime, baby, for the legacy!

American Dragon
From the "J" to the "A" to the "K" to the "E"
I'm the Mack Daddy Dragon of the NYC, ya heard? (American Dragon)

"Jake! Get back to work!" (Amercian Dragon)
"Aw man…" [gong]

Season 2

He's cool, he's hot like a frozen sun
He's young and fast, he's the chosen one
People we're not braggin'
He's the American Dragon

He's gonna stop his enemies with his Dragon power
Dragon teeth, Dragon tail, burning Dragon fire
A real live wire
American Dragon
American Dragon
He's the American Dragon

His skills are getting faster
with Grandpa the master
It's destiny, what's up G?
It's showtime, baby, for the legacy!

American Dragon
I'm a dragon, I'm not braggin', it's my destiny (American Dragon)
I'm the magical protector of the NYC, ya heard? (American Dragon)
