Josh Shapiro said Tuesday he wants singer Billy Joel to pen a new song about Allentown, one that more closely reflects the city’s rebirth than his 1982 tune that laments its downturn. “I’m sick and tired of hearing that old song,” Shapiro said at an appearance in neighboring Bethlehem (which also gets a mention in the old song). “He owes us a new one, given what is happening in Allentown and across the Lehigh Valley.”
