One solution is with map() instead if zip(). map() with None as the
first argument works much like zip(), but it keeps looping if one of the
lists is exhausted. When that happens, it uses None for those values:
words = ['zero', 'one', 'two', 'three']
numbers = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
for word, number in map(None, words, numbers):
print word, number
