Try something like this:
(fieldA, fieldB, fieldC, fieldD)
databaseA.firstTable AS a
JOIN databaseA.secondTable AS b
a.ID = b.ID
If this takes a very long time, you should use "LIMIT start, amount" to only copy a little
portion of the whole data at a time, and let other queries run in between the portions.
