It's a graceful Latin custom for a Host to say, "Mi casa, su casa," when a guest enters his home. It means, "My house is your house," and is the sincerest form of welcome the host knows. Al Hoffman and Dick Manning came up with this sweet song, which Mr. C. made his own with this winsome, completely sincere performance.

( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )
