Andrew B. Sterling (August 26, 1874 – August 11, 1955) was an American lyricist.
Born in New York City, after he graduated from high school, he began writing songs and vaudevilles. An important event was his meeting with the composer Harry Von Tilzer in 1898. The two began a songwriting partnership that lasted almost 30 years.
Others that Sterling collaborated with include Arthur Lange, Gus Edwards, Bernie Grossman, M. K. Jerome, William Jerome, Frederick Allen Mills, brother Raymond Sterling, Ray Henderson, Edward Moran and Bartley Costello.
He wrote the song Wait 'till the Sun Shines, Nellie in 1905, and the song America, Here's My Boy for the Peerless Quartet in 1917, in the aftermath of U.S. entry into World War I in April 1917. He wrote On the Old Fall River Line with Von Tilzer and W. Jerome. He worked with Von Tilzer on the classic Pick Me Up and Lay Me Down in Dear Old Dixieland.
