Lígia - por Tom e Roberto

Reportagem extraída da revista Marie Claire, 116, novembro de 2000

O quase romance

Os olhos verdes da carioca Lygia Marina de Moraes são morenos na letra de "Lígia". Um disfarce da identidade da musa e da atração de Tom Jobim por ela. Tom e Lygia, professora de pré-primário de uma das filhas do compositor, se conheceram em 1968, no bar Veloso, em Ipanema. Nunca houve nada entre os dois, mas aquele encontro daria origem ao samba-canção gravado por Chico Buarque no LP "Sinal Fechado", em 1974. "O Tom vivia de olho nela", diz o jornalista Ruy Castro, que registrou o episódio no livro "Ela é Carioca" (Cia. das Letras).

Por muitos anos Tom negou que Lygia fosse sua musa, em respeito ao amigo Fernando Sabino, marido dela na época. Só em 1994, quando o casal se separou, ele admitiu a inspiração aos amigos. Hoje, aos 54 anos, Lygia mora sozinha e dirige o departamento cultural da Assembléia Legislativa do Rio de Janeiro. Ela recorda com orgulho os detalhes de seu caso jamais consumado com Tom Jobim. 

Lygia Marina de Moraes "Conheci o Tom em uma tarde chuvosa. O bar Veloso estava vazio, era junho e fazia frio. Eu e uma amiga, Cecília, nos sentamos na varanda e vimos o Tom conversando com Paulo Góes [fotógrafo]. Os dois acabaram se sentando na nossa mesa. Quando contei ao Tom que era professora da sua filha Beth, ele teve um ataque de riso e disse: 'É a primeira vez que paquera vira reunião de pais e mestres!'. E eu babando: imagine, em 68, Tom era um dos homens mais lindos do Brasil

Ele tinha que dar uma entrevista a Clarice Lispector para a 'Manchete', e convidou a mim e a Cecília para ir com ele. Fomos no fusquinha azul-claro do Tom. Eu usava uma saia de lã e um suéter de cashmere. Ao abrir a porta, Clarice fez cara de mau humor. Tom, abraçado comigo e com Cecília, disse: 'Trouxe minhas amigas'. Ela ficou mais furiosa quando pediu a Tom que fizesse um poema para ela, como Vinícius [de Moraes] teria feito em entrevista anterior, e ele disse: 'Não sou poeta, se tivesse um violão...'.

Mas aí pegou um bloco de papel-jornal e escreveu um poema para mim, que guardo até hoje: 'Teus olhos verdes são maiores que o mar/ Se um dia eu fosse tão forte quanto você/ Eu te desprezaria e viveria no espaço/ Ou talvez então eu te amasse/ Ai que saudades me dá/ Da vida que eu nunca tive', e assinou: A.C.J.

Saindo de lá, Tom me levou em casa. Nos despedimos no carro, com um beijinho no rosto. Fiquei nervosíssima, mas parou ali. Tom era casado... Aquela carona foi nosso único encontro a sós. A música fala de tudo o que não aconteceu: o cinema, o passeio na praia... Depois nos encontramos muitas vezes, mas sempre em grupo. Logo me casei com o cineasta Fernando Amaral e entrei para a turma. Vivi o auge de Ipanema.

Após quatro anos de casada e um filho, me separei. Depois me casei com o escritor Fernando Sabino. Em 1973, acho que Tom não sabia que eu estava casada com ele, e ligou para o Fernando pedindo meu telefone. Meu marido fez uma sacanagem: deu um número errado. Em seguida, ligou para o telefone que tinha dado e avisou: 'O Tom Jobim vai ligar aí procurando uma Lígia, mas o telefone é tal', e deu outro número errado. Os amigos ficaram sabendo dessa história, inclusive o Tom. Talvez daí tenha surgido a frase na música que fala do telefonema que foi engano.

Estava sozinha em casa quando ouvi no rádio o Chico cantando 'Lígia', pela primeira vez. Fui correndo comprar o disco. Na hora, me vi na letra. Ser homenageada já é maravilhoso, ainda mais pelo Tom, com uma música linda e sofisticada... É uma glória. Claro que a música rendeu comentários e Fernando ficou uma fera. Durante os 19 anos em que fui casada, Tom evitou o tema. Estivemos juntos em vários lugares, tipo réveillon na casa de Jorge Amado, eu com Fernando e Tom com Ana, sua segunda mulher. Mas ninguém falava nisso.

Um dia, Tom me encontrou por acaso na Cobal [sacolão e ponto de encontro] e falou: 'Está chegando minha musa!'. Foi a primeira vez que admitiu para mim. Até hoje, em cada boteco que entro tocam 'Lígia'. Faz parte do meu show. Fiquei imortal. Tenho quase todas as gravações de 'Lígia'. Existe até uma versão do João Gilberto em que, ao contrário da oficial, o romance acontece e Tom até se casa comigo. As pessoas me cobram o fato de nunca ter acontecido nada entre a gente. Mas será que não foi melhor ter ficado essa fantasia? Talvez tivesse de ser essa a história: eu virar musa, entrar em um restaurante e me lembrar do Tom, cheio de charme."
