    sql = (
        'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa'
        'bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb'
    )
    print sql

or, perhaps more realistic:

    cursor.execute(
        'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa'
        'bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb',
        a, b, c
    )

e.g.

    cursor.execute(
        'select * from foo'
        ' where bar=%s'
        ' limit 100',
        bar
    )
