import csv
f = csv.reader(open('data.txt'), delimiter='\t') # 2GB text file
sql = "INSERT INTO `data` VALUES (NULL,%s,%s,%s,%s,%s);"
for row in f:
    print (sql, (row[0],row[1],row[2],row[3],row[4]))

$ python3 parse.py3 > data.sql

But because of print() being a function in Py3,
print (sql, (row[0],row[1],row[2],row[3],row[4]))
INSERT INTO `data` VALUES (NULL, '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s', '%s');
('142', 'abcde', '2006-03-01 05:17:14', '', '')
instead of
INSERT INTO `data` VALUES (NULL, '142', 'abcde', '2006-03-01 05:17:14', '', '');
