What is a? What is b? Their contents? I *guess* this is what you want:

a = {'some': 'values',
      3.14: 'in a',
      1234: 'dictionary'}
b = ('99', 'bottles', 'of', 'beer')
print '\t'.join(a.values()) + '\t' + '\t'.join(b)

The code above only works if all values are strings - else you could get a  
TypeError. In that case, convert all items to string before joining:

a = {'some': 'values',
      'in a': 3.14,
      'dictionary': 1234}
b = (99, 'bottles', 'of', 'beer')
print ('\t'.join([str(value) for value in a.values()])
        + '\t'
        + '\t'.join([str(item) for item in b]))

If this is not your problem, please provide a complete example next time,  
and the full exception traceback is very important too.
