Multiple values from dataselect

I have a multiple item region with a template like this:

<perch:content id="link_url" type="text" label="URL" required="true" />
<perch:content id="link_text" type="text" label="Text" required="true" title="true" />

And I'm trying to use dataselect to grab both the link_url and link_text values at once with one dropdown, like this:

<ul class="navL">
    <li><a href="<perch:content id="link1" type="dataselect" label="Link 1" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_url" />"><span><perch:content id="link1" type="dataselect" label="Link 1" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_text" /></span></a></li>
    <li><a href="<perch:content id="link2" type="dataselect" label="Link 2" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_url" />"><span><perch:content id="link2" type="dataselect" label="Link 2" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_text" /></span></a></li>
    <li><a href="<perch:content id="link3" type="dataselect" label="Link 3" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_url" />"><span><perch:content id="link3" type="dataselect" label="Link 3" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_text" /></span></a></li>
</ul>
<ul class="navR">
    <li><a href="<perch:content id="link4" type="dataselect" label="Link 4" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_url" />"><span><perch:content id="link4" type="dataselect" label="Link 4" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_text" /></span></a></li>
    <li><a href="<perch:content id="link5" type="dataselect" label="Link 5" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_url" />"><span><perch:content id="link5" type="dataselect" label="Link 5" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_text" /></span></a></li>
    <li><a href="<perch:content id="link6" type="dataselect" label="Link 6" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_url" />"><span><perch:content id="link6" type="dataselect" label="Link 6" page="*" region="Nav Links" options="link_text" values="link_text" /></span></a></li>
</ul>

This correctly displays one dropdown per link in Perch, however only the link_url is output for both the href and inner text, as if the "values" for both were link_url. Am I doing this wrong, or does dataselect just not work like this? If it doesn't, is there any other way to do this other than a bunch of perch_content_customs?
