By the way, when lines run so long they can get hard to manage, edit,
understand, et cetera. You should consider setting things up cleanly
before doing the loop and using a list of names for columns like so:


def main():
     l1, l2   = [1,2], [3,4]
     zipped   = zip(l1, l2)
     colnames = "first second".split()

     for columns in zipped:
         coldict = dict(zip(colnames, columns))
         print("coldict", coldict)

main()


This produces output:

coldict {'second': 3, 'first': 1}
coldict {'second': 4, 'first': 2}

.. and then you can pass the coldict on to your string.
